What I Love About My Small Home:
Small?! We prefer the term square foot challenged. When we got our hands on this space, it was nothing more than an empty garage. It was tiny and so was our budget, which encouraged us to look in unconventional places for building materials. The maple flooring was rescued from a flood at a local school gym. The vintage orange fireplace once housed a family of mice in grandpa’s abandoned farmhouse. Our big red headboard hung for years as the “M” on an old WalMart before it took its rightful place above the bed. The lovingly restored rocking chair rocked my wife’s great grandma to sleep and has rocked every generation since. The carefully selected décor was either fabricated on our kitchen floor or found on a stroll through the flea market. Even the IKEA items come with laughable memories of how we felt like the Beverly Hillbillies as we drove home with boxes sticking out in every direction! We remember the love it took to build this house and can’t help but love it back!
