I first posted this story back in 2010 so it might be new to you. Visual and performance artist Michelle de la Vega turned this Seattle garage into a 250 square foot tiny house following a divorce.
Initially she intended to live in the small house and rent out the big house in front to help supplement her income; but has since remarried and moved into the big house.
The entire renovation cost her about $32,000, took nine months, and she acted as general contractor herself.
The full story of this garage conversion is in the New York Times, but I wanted to share this amazing little house with you because it shows how an old space can be turned into an amazing small house. Kudos to Michelle for making this happen. Photo credit to Ira Lippke for The New York Times.
