It’s not a Shed, it’s not a Tiny Home, it’s a … Bed & Breakfast.

Popular B&B - Barn Transformed

How does an ordinary shed become a popular Bed & Breakfast? Sometimes, it’s almost by accident.

When Richard Tinsler of Keswick, VA, bought a 12×24 high-wall barn, he had no intention of turning it into a popular B&B. But his pet birds got involved in some fowl play, and he had to change his plans.

That change included building a bird refuge, and then converting his 12×24 high-wall barn into a bed & breakfast. Get the story straight from Richard …

And arguably the most important component … running water.
You’re not likely to get lost in this room, but it comes complete with a shower.

A (very) high-wall barn, the combination of high walls and gambrel roof allowed this shed to be made into a comfortable 2-story getaway. Amazingly, it doesn’t feel cramped inside.
