Lovely garage-turned-tiny-home by Michelle de la Vega.
Ms. de la Vega, 40, bought the garage and the house in front of it  several years ago, for $208,000, with money from a divorce settlement. 
 “At that time I was coming out of the ashes,” she said, “and knew I  needed to come up with a good survival strategy for starting over as a  single person.”
 To generate a steady income, she decided to rent out the main house and  turn the squat, diminutive garage into her home. And rather than hiring  someone else to supervise the renovation, she was the general  contractor.

    The only thing I don’t like is that there’s no stand-up shower, just a bath tub. Other than that, AWESOME.
