Much as it looks like an old country church, Mikayla’s Wildwood Tiny House is neither consecrated nor restored. Nineteen-year-old Mikayla and her family built it just this year after her uncle, a homebuilder, gave her some leftover wood from one of his projects. Their initial plan was for a simple shed, but then Mikayla’s mom – a fan of old churches and the old-time song “The Church in the Wildwood”, which she used to sing as a lullaby when Mikayla was a baby – reasoned that with a little extra effort they could have a shed that looked like a church. After that, it was Mikayla’s turn to up the ante: with just a bit more work, she suggested, they could build her a livable tiny house. And so they did, using her uncle’s wood for the framing and a boatload of reclaimed fence boards for the shiplap siding and the ceiling. Mikayla got a 600-square-foot tiny house with a living room, kitchen, bathroom, and laundry room on the ground floor and a bedroom upstairs; her mom got the beautiful little church she’d always wanted.
