Tuff Shed Tiny Houses

It surprises some people at my slide show/book signings for Tiny Homes when I say that Tom's cabin (pp. 92-93) is one of my favorite homes in the book. It's a Tuff Shed that Tom bought for $4000 and fixed up to be his tiny home. On the exterior it looks like a storage shed, but inside it's a cozy, well-thought out dwelling.
This morning I see on the Tiny House blog that Tuffshed is now fabricating little buildings intended as tiny homes:
"Most people are familiar with Tuff Shed’s storage sheds and garages, but now the 30-year-old company is designing and manufacturing structures that could be used as tiny homes.…The Premier PRO Weekender Ranch can be finished on the interior by the customer to create a more liveable space. This building includes a steel service door, two 3′x3′ windows, LP TechShield radiant barrier roof decking, 30-Year Owens Corning dimensional shingles, a front porch with overhang and can accommodate any of Tuff Shed’s standard options. The sizes range from 8′x14′ to 16′x24′ and the prices from $4,100 to $8,739.…"
Note: I'm just back from 10 days on the road, unscrambling notes and pics and will post some of it later this week.

In the 90s, my husband and I were putting ourselves through college as caterers. We had a couple of gigs at a place we dubbed the Tuff Shed compound. It was an extended family that had some connection to the local Tuff Shed franchise. They had a main family house and several small houses that appeared to be Tuff Sheds that were connected together to make a useable space. Thinking back on that, it seems a small leap to make Tiny Houses on a Tuff Shed Platform. Maybe someday, we will see Tiny House samples in the Home Depot parking lot...no way

It looks very beautiful to have a tiny home but if you can survive in it. I really liked it.
