Not everyone’s ideal home is a large one. Some people actually prefer to live in a smaller space and take advantage of the smaller price tag. We’re talking tiny houses, of course!
Yet, just because you choose to live “tiny” doesn’t mean that you have to sacrifice modern luxury. In fact, there are some pretty incredible tiny homes out there that seem to have it all.
One Florida residence that’s captured the internet’s attention is a converted old grain silo.
The silo home sits on 25 acres of land in Lake City, Florida.
For those who didn’t grow up around a farm, a silo is used to store agricultural materials such as grain. But in this case, the building has been transformed into a beautiful 454 square-foot living space, complete with a wrap-around deck.
The video provides a tour of the home and all of its features.
As soon as you open the front door, you step into a rustic kitchen. There are gorgeous wood cabinets, a ceiling with recessed lighting, and a sliding barn door. It also has the important basics like a fridge, sink, and lots of counter space!

They didn’t skimp on luxury in the bathroom.
Even this private area has a farm-like feel to it with a corrugated metal shower and wood throughout. (Really, the shower looks amazing with its stone floor too.)
The cabinet and shelves on the wall provide storage space for the essentials. Doesn’t this look cozy?
Upstairs you’ll find the home’s living area.
The circular shape of the room gives it a unique look – not to mention the metal ceiling! Windows are dispersed all around, allowing you to take in the breathtaking scenery wherever you’re facing.
Entertain guests or soak up the sun on the silo’s deck.
The deck wraps all around the home meaning there’s plenty of room to place comfortable seating. Making use of your outside area is important in tiny living – so a deck like this is perfect!
Can you imagine looking at the stars on this patio at night?
If you like space, this ranch has plenty of it.
According to Tiny House Listings, there are riding trails going all around the 25 acres of property and “7,000 feet of ‘no-climb’ horse fence.” It sounds like a dream come true for those who appreciate a mixture of privacy and nature!
While you may enjoy spending most of your time at the residence, there are other things to do in Lake City.
On the Visit Florida website, they say:
“This pristine part of Florida is a natural theme park for outdoor enthusiasts, festival goers, music lovers or those who simply want to spend a little time in a quiet, tranquil setting. Lake City has crystal-clear freshwater springs, rocking music festivals, history, culture, paddling and biking.”
Do you think you could live in this renovated grain silo?
Tiny living isn’t for everybody, but it’s certainly tempting with the benefit of saving money. When it comes to this specific property, one YouTube viewer commented:
“Super cool! I love the idea of taking pretty much anything and making it a home <3”
