- What I Love About My Small Home:
- We designed our "zen loft" inside what was a 2 car garage so that we could live in Portland's best neighborhoods while someone else rents the house to pay our mortgage.
We designed/built almost everything inside by hand and from reclaimed and local materials (including the cabinets, custom furniture, lighting and a island bar that rolls out to seat 6 for dinner).
We splurged where it mattered to us. The garage door was replaced with an accordion system that floods the loft with natural light and allows us to slide the doors open and remove any line between indoors and out. Our kitchen is a chef's dream and our bathroom is a spa-like wetroom with curbless shower and dual heads.
Our home may be small, but we wake up each morning feeling like it borders on luxury. It works well when its only the two of us sitting by the fire, or when hosting parties for 20.
