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

A two-story house is not an affordable investment, but what if there was a budget-friendly alternative for it? People have started to invest in prefab sheds and turned them into cozy homes, large enough for a small family.
These prefab sheds don’t cost a lot, can be transformed easily into a home and they are available to purchase from Home Depot.
The Tuff Shed TR-1600 is among the most popular choices and be converted into a tiny house with a little bit of creativity.
The price of the shed varies depending on its size and is among $13,000 and $24,000 but is still much cheaper than a home built from scratch.
The Tuff Shed TR-1600 has the first floor with 8-foot-high floors, a fully usable second floor, and interior stairs. The best part is that each tiny home can be customized according to your needs and you can even install a front porch for extra space.
This means that this shed can instantly become a vacation home, holiday rental, or a permanent home for you and your family.

    Don’t you have hurricanes down in Texas? This thing will be matchsticks after the first good storm. Building codes exist for a reason. Sorry – looks great, and would probably be good for a studio you can exit in a hurry, but not as a primary residence for sure.

    • Esther says:

      In one of the articles I read about this house, they made sure that the shed home was up to code and set in a concrete base to help resolve this issue.

    Some people have no idea how to build anything and what it will stand up to . Lmao . Building 16 ft wide with 2×10 no ! 2×12 for any span over 12 ft. No bounce . Great building other than that

  18. Barry says:

    My wife and I live in the TR-1600 with the aqua door pictured above. I’d like to respond to a couple of the posts here.

    K. Ellis – our Tuff Shed home is constructed with 2×6 stud walls, and 2×12 joists under both floors.

    Heidi Pilots – our home exceeds the 2015 International Building Code. It’s built better than many homes in subdivisions.We had it built to withstand the minor earthquakes the we of occasionally have, and higher winds as well.

    Lisa – we have two large rooms – 1 up and 1 down. Our living room, kitchen, pantry, and a half bath are downstairs. Upstairs is a large bedroom and a full bath.

    To everyone else, thanks for your interest and kind words!

  19. Pegyg says:

    Barry, how did you go about getting a building permit from your local authorities. Also I cannot find a place to order or even get a price on these. Can you help me out there?

    Much appreciated,
