BUYING a home is a challenging task for many people – especially for those who are single and don’t have enough money to save up a hefty deposit.
One woman, influencer Elise Buch, knew all about it and was heartbroken when she realized she couldn’t afford to buy a home.
However, Elise did not let this put her off and instead, she realized that with the money she had, she could instead buy a warehouse.
Elise has arrived YouTube to explain what happened and to show off her newly purchased garden house.
The 28-year-old has 239k subscribers on YouTube and regularly posts content about saving, gardening and her small business and the work she puts into it.
Elise lives with her bunny, Luna and has been single since 2016.
Elise purchased the allotment warehouse and is absolutely delighted with her purchase.
“I did it,” she said. I bought a small house and a garden.
“I am delighted to share this with you and am so excited to start digging the flower beds, painting and decorating.
“I still can’t believe this is real and I received the key yesterday.
“As you know, I’ve been dreaming and talking about owning a house for a long time but money wise and being single and buying a huge house, that feeling wasn’t really that time. .
“But since I used to dream about having my own garden and my own space to do whatever I wanted to do, I have now purchased what is apparently called an allotment garden, which is basically a bungalow and then a little garden where I can do basically whatever I want.
“I think it’s because everything happened so fast last week that it still feels a little bit unreal.”
In Elise’s video, she shows around her ‘chalet’ and the gardens around it.
“This is my little house, it’s my tree, it’s my garden,” she explains.
“I can sit here, I can have my morning coffee, I can look out over my garden and have a really good time.
“The previous owner left all her things here for me to take over.”
When you enter Elise’s cabin, there is a seating area with a large sofa and two large armchairs.
Then there is a small kitchen and seating area, with a table and four chairs.
There is also a wood burning stove to heat the house.
Elise added: ‘There’s a small kitchen here, it doesn’t have water anywhere.
“I have an oven, which is pretty basic.
“Then if you go further here, maybe install a bathroom and a toilet.
“It’s basically my little house.”
Elise is currently living in an apartment, but wants to buy a property so she can have one of her own.
She continued: “This will be my second home, I want to use it during the summer.
“I like to come here often, I can come here for work, dinner or on weekends.
“I will put a bed here so I can stay.
“There is also a shared toilet for the gardens here so if I want to stay and need to go to the bathroom there is a toilet very close by.
“This will be my position.
“For a long time, I felt that I needed a place that was really mine, not my apartment but somewhere I owned.
“Although it was a scary decision, I feel at home here.

“I only had the key for a day but it seemed so real and so true, it was pretty crazy.
“It’s going to be a beautiful place when I’m done, it’s so surreal.”
Elise’s video has clearly impressed many people and has garnered 307,775 views and 1,322 comments.
One said: “I am really happy for you. It’s a cute little house and has a lot of potential. For me, the most important thing is getting the water in there and the bathroom. I will put all my money into getting that job done because it increases the value of the house.”
Another added: “Enjoy your new property Elise. To me, there is nothing more precious than owning your space to do whatever you want with it. It is absolute happiness and I really feel how happy you are. Blessings to you and your abode! ”
A third commented: “Glad to see where the improvements take this tiny home. As a tiny house owner, I wish you all the best! ”
