A retired woman with ‘little savings’ builds an innovative tiny home and shows how she makes it work

She couldn’t believe she made this tiny house herself, but she was also pleased with how it turned out. A perfect retirement home indeed!

Allyson built Daisy, her tiny house, as a retirement solution.

Seven years ago, she realized she could not afford rent once she retired.

She has little savings, and her company doesn’t offer any pension. So, she gathered the courage (and knowledge) to build her tiny home.

All that hard work paid off for Allyson now that she had a lovely home.

She wanted to have a bigger living room because that’s where she plans to spend most of her time indoors.

The sofa is made of two Ikea shelvings laid on their sides, topped with a mattress that can be a couch and a sleeping area. She added removable shelves below to store her dog Tucker’s toys, hobby materials, and shoes.

One of her favorite things in her house is her red leather chair.

It has a folding footstool and reclining headrest perfect for reading and napping.

The chair sits beside an oil-filled radiator to keep her warm, and it has a sanded wood block on top which works as a simple coffee table.

There’s a counter beside the sofa with enough height for working and eating.

When she’s not dining on it, she works on her hobbies and other paper works.

Allyson has a few shelves, which she made from a woman’s woodworking workshop. There’s a little cabinet that she calls her “office” because it contains most of her office supplies.
