What inspired you?

IN 1983 WHILE ATTENDING COLLEGE MY FATHER APPROACHED ME ABOUT DISIGNING AND BUILDING AN APARTMENT ABOVE THE GARAGE FOR ME TO LIVE IN. I BUILT A SCALE MODEL IN MY INDUSTRIAL ARTS CLASS AND HIRED A DRAFTSMAN FOR THE PLANS. I WANTED A FULL SIZE KITCHEN AND BATH,A GAS BURNING FIREPLACE, LOTS OF LIGHT, AND A HIGH CEILING TO AVOID CLAUSTROPHOBIA. AFTER LIVING IN MY STUDIO FOR 23 YEARS I AM STILL HAPPY WITH THE EFFICIENT DESIGN.

Design Tip:

MY ONE DESIGN TIP WOULD BE TO DO WHATEVER YOU LIKE AND FEEL FREE TO BREAK RULES!
