These days, you can pretty much DIY anything you set your mind to: faux-marble countertops, paper houseplants (seriously!), and even fancy looking candle holders made out of used glass pickle jars. There are endless possibilities for the creative crafter. And for the more experienced DIY-ers, there's an even bigger project that's just waiting to be built for those daring enough to try: How about an entire guest house for your backyard?
If you're not quite ready to move your entire life into a tiny space like this, never fear: You can convert it into a guest home, a studio, garden house, pool house, or truly anything your heart desires. Plus, you can purchase all the parts and instructions on Amazon.
At a mere 172 square feet, the tiny space is compact enough to actually fit but still has enough room to be useful, whether it's used for storage or for pure fun. In the description, the plans say that this tiny structure can be built in way less than a day—in eight hours, to be exact—when two adults team up for the job.
If you want to add anything extra like HVAC or electricity to this DIY home, you'll need to do that yourself—it doesn't include any of those amenities. Other than that, feel free to paint the wooden structure and decorate as you wish—the tiny house is yours to customize!
