What is the advantage of SMALL? Living small allows us to surround ourselves with the things we need most and little else, and also brings us closer together!
What's your favorite resource for your home?
We enjoy scouting out hand-me-downs and items that would otherwise be trashed to give them second life in our loft. We acquired our headboard, leather living room chairs, and the MDF deer cutout all by intercepting what might otherwise have been thrown away, in addition to countless other items. DIY projects and adopting fixer-uppers are a great way for us to customize the loft to be both visually and functionally what we need in a home, and a place we can really call our own.
What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?
There are a number of elements we enjoy in our small home! The high ceilings and large windows are a major plus, and allow the space to feel a lot larger than 817sf. The balcony is also great as it provides us with a fantastic view of the Vancouver Shipyards.
