Sheds are great tiny homes

When we bought this land there was nothing.

We stayed in a tent for several days.

We also camped in the storage shed.

Then we had a cabin shaped shed delivered.

We now have a larger barn shed to live in. The smaller cabin for guests.

Not to pry, Chad, but are you willing to show any photos of the inside? Or just describe? I'm always curious how people arrange their habitats to meet their needs when living tiny.
I like that you've chosen the way of the shed; so much of tiny house buzz is obsessed with building, but I am not a builder and don't want to live in anyone's first try, even mine! The life after moving in is what I'm after.

It's crowded.

Here are photos inside the first cabin.

A couple inside Cabin Teux

This one has a bed facing the back. The loft is double-length.

We have a double reclining couch on one wall, food and a fridge on the other. We can drop a sheet down from the loft to watch movies with the projector.

The fridge is a compressor driven travel cooler. We have two different models. One of a freezer in the first cabin.
