You'll want to take a look at this tiny "Shed That Looks And Acts Like A Small Log Cabin." This tiny cabin is big enough to live in full time, with lots of great features making it cosy and comfortable.
This tiny shed is actually an Amish built shed. The log cabin/shed has residential style windows that are single pane. The tiny cabin has a really sharp pitch so you get plenty of room in the loft. Enough room for most of to stand in and enjoy a full sized bedroom. The front porch has pressure treated wood already so it’s protected and finished. The ceiling in the porch is tongue and groove pine. Inside you’ll find 2 by 6 studs and it’s all unfinished so you can put in your own insulation then follow it up with interior wall paneling (tongue and groove pine) or drywall. Inside it’s 14 feet by 30 feet so there is plenty of room. There are real stairs up to the loft.
The small house movement also known as the tiny house movement, is a famous description for the architectural and social movement that advocates living simply in small homes. In the United States the average size of new single family homes grew from 1,780 square feet in 1978 to 2,479 square feet in 2007, and to 2,662 square feet in 2013, despite a decrease in the actual size of the average family. Reasons for this include increased material wealth and prestige. The tiny house movement is a return to houses of less than 1,000 square feet. Frequently the distinction is made between small between 400 square feet and 1,000 square feet, and tiny houses that are less than 400 square feet, with some houses as small as 80 square feet. Downsizing to a tiny house is a great way to do away with large mortgages, hydro bills and all the stuff that goes into a large house, and a way to live a more sustainable lifestyle.
