We built a little house in our garden and Airbnb paid it £ 2,500 per month
A COUPLE revealed how they built a tiny house in their backyard which they are now selling on Airbnb for £ 2,500 a month.
TikTok user Steph, who posts under @stephinvests, shared how rental income earns double her mortgage.
She wrote on TikTok: “I built a #tinyhome in my backyard. It earns $ 3,500 (£ 2,500) / month in short-term rental income.
“It’s $ 42,000 (£ 30,000) a year.”
She showed a time-lapse video of how she created the 240-square-foot house and laid the foundation in the garden first.
They added an outdoor patio, indoor kitchen and living room, as well as a mezzanine bedroom.
After their construction, which included doing some of the work themselves and outsourcing the rest to licensed contractors, they had created a very stylish and comfortable retreat for people visiting the area.
His video racked up over 750,000 views and many people were very impressed.
One of them said: “Great idea! “
Another added: “Wow you did a great job.”
People have asked her how she managed to pay for the house, and Steph replied in the comments that she had saved £ 28,000 in cash for the construction.
She added that she got the money back in less than a year and it was a huge source of income for her.
Meanwhile, a couple explained that they were mortgage-free and rent-free after buying a £ 2,500 double-decker London bus and turning it into a stylish home.
