People Are Turning Home Depot Tuff Sheds Into Affordable Two-Story Tiny Homes

Have you ever looked at a shed and thought “Hmm… if done the right away, that could actually make a great little home.”? Well, you are in luck: in the area of prefab tiny homes, a tuff shed tiny home could be in your future.

Home Depot Tuff Shed Tiny Homes

Home Depot’s Tuff Shed TR-1600 is the perfect shed to convert into a full-time home. The best part about them? They cost just $13,000 to $24,000, depending on the size. That’s a whole lot cheaper than a regular home or cottage!

Not convinced? Here are the stats:

  • 8-foot high walls on the first floor
  • Full second floor
  • 36-inch stairs with a full banister
  • 3 by 7-foot entry door with a lock
  • Boxed eaves on all the walls

Turning A Shed Into A Tiny Home

Each shed is customizable. You can get different amounts and sizes of windows and shutters, window boxes, a ridge vent, and custom sidewall porch upgrades. 

The interior is also entirely up to you. You decide on the number of bedrooms and bathrooms, how open or closed concept you want the space to be, the style, colors, and overall look of the place. These sheds are done so well that looking at them you’d hardly know it was a shed.

Even if full-time living in a small space such as this isn’t something you want to do, they could easily be used as a vacation home or cottage, a guest house right on your own property, even a separate space for, say, adult children who are home in summers between school semesters or who are saving money post-graduation.
