Converting shipping containers into tiny homes is a popular trend, but using a grain silo as a structural shell to build upon is a rarity! Meet Bob and Ann, a couple who scouted eBay on a lazy Sunday afternoon just to stumble upon a grain silo for £1! Bob, an artist with over twenty years of experience, brought the old hard structure and began bringing it to life; turning it into an amazing backyard treasure.
The couple poured their art and creativity into this home converting the solid structure into what you see today as a tiny house. The exterior of the tiny house is corrugated and provides a rugged look throughout. The roundness of the place with no hard edges and corners makes the space more gentle and open. The space inside is smartly converted using heavy rusted materials which are then polished to add character to the space.
Stepping inside you are swayed by the artistic and warm interiors. You may call it an industrial castle, with metal, timber, and concrete all working beautifully together. Interestingly, each and everything inside has been lovingly crafted by the duo.
A lounger, round table, fireplace, cooking nook, and bathroom greet you on the inside of the house. The highlight of the house is the cozy mezzanine sleeping loft with storage space which is accessed by a pull-down ladder. The bathroom’s door and inside are neat, compact, mostly made of steel, and laced with modern amenities.
The house has an elemental and natural look to it, thanks to the ingenious use of wood and metal. The Grain Silo tiny house is completely functional and yet filled with jaw-dropping features. The tiny house is featured by Living Big in A Tiny House and carries a rough price of £4,000 (approximately $5,000).
