Be my Guest House!

There are so many reasons to build a guest house or studio, cottage in the back yard. Some great reasons are to serve as a workspace, playroom, guest accommodation, and as a rental.

I know this is a plan we are looking into for the future, ideally building extra living quarters downstairs to accommodate for friends and family.

Essentially you can make your guest house fully self sustainable with kitchen and a bath depending on your budget.

Some great kits are available and there are plenty of D.I.Y instructions online.

I've been doing a little research, and in doing so, I came across the Tiny House Movement. It's basically a "social movement where people are downsizing the space that they live in". 

The tiny house is a great option for a guest house.
