#13 - Andy K's Unexpected Garden Apartment

Name: Andy K
Location: Chicago
Size & Type: 522 sq. ft. 1 bedroom rental

Favorite resource: I've made a trip or two to Ikea and CB2.

Pitch: My small is cool because it's a garden apartment that never feels like one, and no one ever see's it coming. With its entrance around the side of the house and down a narrow walkway, through a door which could just as easily be for the storage room, the warmth of this space always comes as a big surprise.

Pitch Cont'd: It's a kind of hidden place, unexpected from the outside and realized only after entering. I enjoy seeing the different reactions people have when they first walk into the space.

Your favorite element: The exposed brick and the oven/stove (original) which the landlord chose to leave in when renovating the unit.
