How about a shed for a cabin?


There is a big movement, well maybe it’s a “small” movement :) using sheds for cabins or even your full on home, it’s a good way to have a ready made structure without having to build it yourself from scratch.

LaMar Alexander takes us on a tour of various sized sheds, he explains the pros and cons of each type, and how to improve these simple structures to convert them into something you can live in.

  1. My wife and I built a cabin from a 16’x24′ shed. we added a 8′ covered front porch. We LOVE it and plan to retire in it. The hardest thing to do is leave the camp and come back to “the world”…….

  2. I purchased a 16×18 Quonset last year and were going to spray foam and install a wood stove in it. Just going to have a wood floor and two windows its a guest cabin separate from the main cabin. I will post pictures when done

  3. This looks great! I’ve been going back forth between building my own and starting with a shed base, with some help I think I can build a great tiny home. You offered some good pointers, thanks for this video!
