Incredible Transformation! Old Water Tank Into A Tiny House

Tiny tree houses built on trees are everyone’s dream. But what if there aren’t any suitable trees around? Don’t worry, human imagination conquers all.

Ronald Tan decided to build a dollhouse for his children who could not go out due to the pandemic.

With the guidance of his wife, he started with the idea that the iron skeleton of the water tank in the garden might be suitable for this. The dollhouse project, which he started for his two children at first, later turned into a tiny house project.

There is a toilet and kitchen on the lower floor of the tiny house, and a bedroom on the upper floor. The whole family can fit comfortably in the house. They can even accept guests.

The sofas in the house were used as storage space for clothes and basic necessities.

This tiny house with the items cost P200,000 (aprox. $4000).
Ronald Tan hopes that this tiny house he built will inspire those who are considering building their own tiny house.

Tan says that with a budget that starts at P60,000 (aprox. $1200) to P80,000 (aprox. $1600), a tiny house can be built in the Philippines, including a few items.
