Transformation of Existing Grain Silo

Location: Gruene, Texas USA

By making use of an existing structure (walls, a roof, and an existing concrete floor slab) it is easy to make good use of buildings that are no longer used for their original intention.

Before: Free Standing Grain Silo                  After: Tiny House with Porch

This tiny house made from a 1940s grain silo is a one bedroom loft that can house up to four people comfortably. It has large beds as well as a private porch for people to have a relationship with the outdoors. The diameter is 5 meters and 80 square meters and about 5.5 meters high. The structure itself exists as a fire and termite resistant and allows for the silos to be stacked or easily placed side by side.
