#9 - Mark & Stephanie's Every Square Inch

(Note: this time around submissions can only be voted on for 3 days, so vote soon! Thursday and Friday entries get an extra day because of the weekend.)

Name: Mark R. & Stephanie D.
Location: Chelsea neighborhood in Manhattan
Size & Type: Studio, less than 400sf for two of us and a 20lb cat.

Favorite resource: Thrift stores and local hardware.

Pitch: i designed it, but i also built it - elbow grease and all - and most of the furniture in it. and i have the scars to prove it. ;) this let me really use every square inch - like flipping some 2x4s studs sideways to make walls thinner; filled the walls with speaker wire; putting in a bathroom "window" to the "living room"; etc. but, i did not want to sacrifice style or make it seem small.
