I am hoping to soon find a place to build and then park my tiny house. I need a place in the country, and with access to electric service. But what I'm thinking of doing before I start building my house, is building a small shed, very close to where the trailer will be parked.
One of the things I really want adjacent to my house on wheels is a small hen house. So I thought that if I build that first, then I can use it to house my tools and supplies while building the tiny house. It will give me a secure place to store things and at 8' x 10' it will give me enough room to also work inside of it. Once I'm done building I can fix up the inside to house my hens and still have an area for tools storage too.
I have always loved designing and building pretty, useful structures. In looking for a nice shed photo to place here I came across this:
Oh - my - gosh. Have you ever seen a more gorgeous hen house??? You can buy the plans for this beautiful "chez poulet" here: http://heatherbullard.com/2012/11/at-home-chez-poulet-coop-chickens/
I think my shed will be of more simple design, but wow, is this a gorgeous inspiration. I have always used bold, black hinges and handles on my fences, gates, and outbuildings, and would love to incorporate that into my tiny house. And I might just have to put a cupola on my hen house.
