What I Love About My Small Home:
We love *deep breath* our library, our bright colored walls, our old building details, our art deco lighting fixtures, the DIY up the wazoo from chandeliers to wookiee message boards to reupholstery projects, our silly mural, our bed nook, and our cats. I think we're most proud of having brought it all together on a shoestring budget with all thrift shop or side of the road furniture.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space
Ever since we came up with our unusual room set up (you may want to see our floor plan for more detail), it feels like we've got plenty of room for two people. We lost a lot of storage for our set up, but it's all hidden under the bed and behind the books. Being able to paint was a game changer for us. I think a lot of time when people can't paint all the areas run together. Each of our rooms is a different bright color, and a different theme. It really helps us focus on how many different areas we have.
