Not many people understood why Monica Smith began
working on her 8x10 shed in the back MEM and then
laughed when = realized she was turn g
cabin. It seemed strange that she was putting '.
much effort into = a shed. am it wasn' t just a hobby.
Her youngest daughter and 5 children lost their home.
So, Monica decided to give them her own and move out
to the back yard.
This may be the coolest grandmother ever.
She was able to transform an 8x10 toolshed into a livable
It had an adorable full kitchen.
There was even cupboard space.
On the other side of the cabin is the living room. It' s hard
to believe that a shed could fit so much furniture.
Once you go upstairs, you' ll see a bedroom.
Inside there is room for a bed, plus a table and
The outside is not yet shed, but the inside is amazing!
Monica didn' t even hire contractors to help her
complete this project. She did all of the work herself,
only getting some assistance from her children and
Monica Smith, you win the Grandmother of the Year

I don't think grandma can dig up the entire backyard to make the plumbing.
User avatar #79 to #50 - chompysaurus (01/18/2014) [-]
But what about the sink? or does she just use the hose from the original house?
#106 to #79 - Rascal (01/18/2014) [-]
Sinks are good enough to pee in.. Bushes for pooping and sink again for hobo baths.
User avatar #17 to #8 - ktbmnf (01/18/2014) [-]
im guessing that if she needs to use the bathroom she could just go to the main house, that is if the shed isn't too far. or a pail outside, you know.

Wow, she's an expert at making space count.

I feel like I'd bang my head every 30 minutes if I lived there.

why wouldn't her grandchildren allow her to stay in her own house
User avatar #93 to #46 - danniegurl ONLINE (01/18/2014) [-]
I'm sure they didn't ask for it, but she id this voluntarily. Probably insisted.

Have you ever stayed in a house with 5 kids? Just two drive me insane at times. **** that.
User avatar #111 - kaycie (01/18/2014) [-]
little does everyone know, she didn't hire a contractor because she was already a trained contractor.
User avatar #78 - naitsabesh ONLINE (01/18/2014) [-]
That's pretty cool and nice and all. But couldn't she just've invited them to live with her instead? I'm sure having a grandma that capable around the house wouldn't really be a problem...

would be cooler if tiny houses weren't a common thing.
User avatar #66 to #41 - biocomshock (01/18/2014) [-]
move to the south. My parents were dirt poor but could still get a sizable house for 5 people. Only problem with the south is that everything is far away and everyone is distanced. In retrospect, I enjoy smaller places.

thats illegal
User avatar #89 to #65 - supersaiyajin (01/18/2014) [-]
How so?
User avatar #132 to #89 - amberleafwoohoo (01/18/2014) [-]
you need housing permits etc etc you can't just decide to inhabit in someone's shed. if you could, people could just live anywhere they pleased without the need for land permits or anything like that.

educate yo'self.
#122 to #65 - enzothesomething (01/18/2014) [-] is that illegal? What, what I don' even... What the **** is wrong with this country?
User avatar #131 to #122 - amberleafwoohoo (01/18/2014) [-]

I was just thinking this. It's strange that no one else seems to be aware of it.

The sad part is with as awesome and selfless as this is, if code enforcement catches on they will probably evict her.
User avatar #21 - psydoc (01/18/2014) [-]
Sadly, this is probably illegal, and the government will probably eventually make them either tear it down or revert it to being a shed.

Must be hard to masturbate without awkwardly asking everyone to leave.

I'm just having a bit of a rough time believing she goes up and down those "stairs" daily.
Most grandparents look like they can't get into a tall vehicle without losing a hip.

But then again, some of them are in better shape than I am.

If said grandmother had a child at 20, then it is possible she is between 40-50 years of age at this point. And if she did the majority of the work fixing up the place, that is a lot more laborious than going up the ladder/stairs 2-3 times daily.

Everyone is different based on their conditions and habits, but personally my father was a contractor from the time he left Vietnam until now. He's on oxygen, but I just lost my home due to a sudden lay off of employment, and that old 71 year old man completely renovated the basement. It's much nicer than the place I was living, even. He can't do a lot, but he works away slowly like a stead fast oxen. He just never quits, and should have passed away years ago, surviving a dangerous position in Nam, 3 different kinds of cancer, and a lung collapse.. But some people refuse to take 'no' for an answer and set their own standards.

Here's to grand parents and parents everywhere who have big hearts. I'm 20, the world is cruel on us all, and my aging parents don't have long to live. Love them while you can. I'm racing to finish a BA degree/medical school before they expire. "Your time here was not wasted. I love you, and this is what I have become because of you. You were not always perfect parents, but I was never a perfect child. Thank you for raising and not giving up on me."

Man.. Some day, I'm going to be visiting my father's headstone with a stethoscope around my neck and a brand new degree framed in my hand standing in the middle of a grave yard. "Look dad. I really wanted you to see this..."

He just won't make it that long.. I wanted him to be proud of me.
