Ever wanted to turn your backyard barn or shed into a livable tiny house for guests or for yourself? One of our awesome readers, Jean, sent me photos and information on how she converted this barn into a little home. At approximately 288 square feet, it’s not incredibly tiny, but you can take the same concepts and apply it to an even smaller structure.
She added a tin ceiling inside after insulating and installed a beam down the center where Jean also installed a ceiling fan.
In the bathroom (see below) you can use a combination of tin and wood to keep material costs low.
She installed hand-made tongue and groove wood flooring, sanded the walls, stained everything, and polished.
Jean used an old log to create lots of what you see inside, added a carpeted sleeping loft upstairs, and insulated the entire thing.
The antique bar stools were a good choice and Jean used an old log to create the bar (see above). I have long been fascinated by this idea and even wrote a post about converting sheds into tiny houses back in February of 2011. I think the dark adds a bit of continuity with the exposed framing.it kind of dresses up the framing lumber a bit.
How did you keep condensation from building up under the insulation on the roof on the inside?

Any info on best way to accomplish the task of putting siding outside and putting a stronger roof on, and insulating the interior.
Does anyone have any ideas he can use to add siding and a roof over his corrugated metal storage building?
You could put up a free standing roof that is attached to posts of either concrete, wood, or bamboo. All art (images and content) pieces featured on this blog are in the exclusive property of the designers and artists that created them. I have cup hooks in the ceiling to hang a tarp from to cover the blast cabinet & other things while painting. What do the CIA, FBI, NSA, Pentagon, White House, Microsoft, Apple, VA, ATT, Chase, Bank of America, Target,Walmart, Sony Play Station, the Justice Department and I have in common? He has a passion for exploring and sharing tiny homes (from yurts and RVs to tiny cabins and cottages) and inspiring simple living stories. I really love the use of galvy roofing metal for wall coverings it looks good,hangs quick and is definitely built to last!

I would have use lighter colors within though, just me, darker ones visually make a place feel smaller.
I would like to put some type of siding around the outside of the building and put a standard roof over the thin corrugated metal which has already been punctured by falling limbs. I pressure-washed it and painted it forest green, trimmed out the doors and windows with white.

I have a 10" fan hanging from one wall that will blow air on me when using the blast cabinet during hot weather.
