What I Love About My Small Home:
This is a loft above a commercial space that is in an 1890's era stone building, that I purchased in 2010 and gut renovated. I love the open feeling, which despite it's small size, is enhanced by the bright skylights and exposed framing. I put the insulation on the outside of the original framing when I replaced the roof, that way all the original rafters and collar ties are exposed, which gives it it's light, airy beachhouse vibe.
Three of My Best Tips and Tricks for Creating a Successful Small Space::
It's tricky to shoehorn all the conveniences into such a small apartment, so every inch counts. I spent a lot of time planing and building all the custom built in drawers and cabinets so that I could live comfortably and not be overwhelmed by clutter.
