Absolute DREAM Cabin Converted from a Century-Old Barn – Full Tiny House Tour

This incredible cabin was lovingly designed and renovated by its owner, Brett, who lived in it for several years before starting to rent it out to guests recently. If you’re travelling to Toronto, you can find out more about it on Airbnb:

The structure was originally built in 1890 to be a coach house and horse stable in the backyard of the main house, and it’s had many uses over the years before being converted into this tiny house. It’s pretty unusual to find a space like this that feels like it belongs in the countryside just a few steps away from a busy street in the city.

The main floor is just 270 square feet (approx. 16’ x 17’) with another 77 square feet in the loft (approx. 7’ x 11’). You can access the loft via a stunning wooden spiral staircase (with hand grips for stability!).

This is a 4-season space and there are quite a few ways to control the temperature to make sure it’s comfortable year-round. For heat, there’s a heated floor, electric wall heater, wood stove, and a space heater. For cooling, there’s a mini-split air conditioning unit, a ceiling fan, windows, and a fan.

We hope you enjoyed checking this cabin out! Again, if you want to spend time here while you’re visiting Toronto, check it out here:

Thanks for watching!

  1. Gorgeous place to stay in the middle of downtown. All details are respectful of the history of the place and very well though. Love the inviting couch and this friendly stove. The kitchen is well organized and the dishwasher is a top! All this wood around Gide such a nice feeling. Sure you don’t have the impression to be right downtown. I am not so sure about the rope very close to the bed that doesn’t give much protection when you wake up….from a nightmare! I would like to stay there anyway and enjoy the patio during summer. Thanks for this nice discovery!

  2. New drinking game: every time the guide says 'space' you drink. Good Luck 😅

  3. This isn't an alternative living arrangement, this is an ad for a hotel room. Dislike!

  4. I think this cabin is my favorite so far…
    First of all, it’s made out of a horse barn I am a horse owner, lol❣️
    I really love the whole layout. I thought it was very thoughtful and very clever. I especially love the sliding barn door! The stacked washer and dryer and basically a walk-in closet, fantastic idea💯💚👍🙏☮️

  5. Anyone else see the handle on the floor of the shower?! I really really want to know if it lifts up and if so what was under it!!

  6. My problem is when I live in a city, I want a city feel. Who really feels country charm with traffic and horns?

  7. I want one like this,been considering a tiny home,main worry…heat,I always said when I get one, must be with wood burning stove,/fireplace etc, & plenty of hot water ♓👏😉

  8. The windows besides the bed, does it open for cross air flow?
    What is the door besides the main door outside?

  9. Great tour!
    You are really the best showing these Tiny spaces, especially mentioning each and every detail 🤓
    Wonderful woodwork, functionality and home feel. This place is a gem, bravo to the owner 👏🏻

  10. Would be good if you converted ot metric measurements, too. You want the world ot watch your videos, yes? The rest of the world is metric. Sio use it. Don't be stupid.
