A well laid out plan can yield excellent results. With careful planning, you can make use of all the space you have, and turn a storage shed into a house complete with a living room, kitchen, and bathroom. Converting a storage shed into a she shed is not as difficult as it may seem. With six simple steps, you can change your drab storage shed into a living space with all the necessities to live comfortably.
Step 1: Planning
Determine the space you need for your shed, measure out the area, and sketch out the design you want for your shed. Allocate space for a porch and determine which assets you want for your building. You can also add a porch for a homely feel. Clean the inside and outside of yours shed well before you start your construction.
Step 2: Repairs
If your roof, foundation, or walls need any repairs, be sure not to neglect them. A proper foundation will endure that your building lasts a long time and will save you in costly repairs later. Check the ground and the foundation for moisture, and any other compromises.
Step 3: Insulation
Proper insulation in the walls and roof will not only help you better control temperature but also save energy. If you have single pane windows, consider replacing them with double-pane windows that have screens. You can also install drywall and paint over it to add to the ascetics.
Step 4: Rooms
Build a small bathroom, kitchen, bedroom, and living room. You can add counters and open shelves for storage.
Step 5: The Interior
Determine which flooring you want to go with and have it laid down. Hardwood or tile are both excellent options. Additionally, a few heaters and an ac unit will go a long way in controlling the temperature. Radiators that use oil are an energy efficient heating option.
Step 6: furniture
You can reuse old furniture or purchase new furniture for your tiny house. Using a sofa instead of a bed can help your safe space. You can use a table as a desk as well.
A tiny house can be a comfy hideaway that is perfect for small intimate gatherings or space just for you.
