For over two generations, we have been building high quality, fully customizable portable buildings in Missouri and we would love to make it easy for you to own one.

Rent to Own Tiny House: Convert One of Classic’s Sheds

You can rent to own any of our portable buildings from our Dutch Country, Classic (except cabins), and Chateau Series. We have many great models of sheds such as our lofted barns, lofted garden barns, and country barns, that will work perfectly for a rent to own tiny house.

Classic can also provide some great optional shed accessories which will give you a head start with converting your shed into a tiny home. These include:

  • Radiant heat barrier walls and roof
  • Insulated floor and extra heavy duty floor
  • Small electrical package
  • Shelving and work bench

Contact your local building specialist for additional customization options.

*Please note that our tiny homes, cabins, and garages do not qualify for the rent to own program. You can, however, finance your tiny house purchase through Hearth Financing. They allow you to be pre-qualified for a loan without any impact on your credit score. Learn more about financing your tiny house here.

Benefits of Living in a Tiny House

There are many reason why so many people are deciding to live in tiny houses. Here are a few of the great advantages:

Live debt-free and mortage-free: Because a shed costs only a fraction of the price of a full-sized home, you can live debt-free and mortgage-free much sooner than if you had purchased a larger home.

Pay lower taxes: A small home that has a lower value means that you will also pay less tax because the amount of tax you pay is assessed according to the value of your property. Who doesn’t want to pay fewer taxes?

Pay less for amenities: Because of its smaller size, you will spend less on heat, air conditioning, and hydro. That is good for your pocketbook and better for the environment as well.

Have more disposable income: The wonderful thing about living in a tiny home is that because your fixed expenses are so much lower than if you had a larger home, you’ll have much more disposable income that you can use on other things like creating great memories with your family.

Have more time: A tiny house requires much less maintenance so you will have more time to spend with your family.

Examples of People Who Have Converted a Shed to a Tiny House

Jim converted a 240 sq. ft. lofted barn shed into a tiny house

Jim, a single father, decided that the time with his daughter was too short; only 18 summers long, so he wanted to spend less money so he could have more amazing experiences with his daughter. Converting a 240 sq. ft. lofted barn shed into a tiny house made this possible for him and his daughter. The above video gives you an extended tour of Jim’s converted shed.

A lofted country barn is a great choice for a tiny house conversion. The two separate lofts mean that there is plenty of space for two separate sleeping areas above and sufficient living space below.

This family is enjoying life, debt-free

This family of 5 converted a 16 X 48 lofted shed into a tiny house. It took them 515 days to complete the conversion, but you can watch it in 13 minutes. They traded their 2000 sq. ft. home in the suburbs on 1/8 of an acre for a tiny home with a much smaller footprint. They decided to add on a huge front and back deck to give them extra outdoor living space.

The Fobians converted their Classic shed into a retreat home

The Fobians were wanting a retreat home where they could go and enjoy time fishing with their grandchildren on their property near Benton Springs. Classic Buildings built them a two-story Country Barn that Clark says is so structurally sound that it will be able to handle lots of weather, snow, and different environmental hazards over the years. You can read their full story here.
