Location: Charleston, South Carolina
I live in Charleston, SC, and just downsized from a 1000-sq foot house to a 350-sq foot garage apartment. I realized the house was too big for me. I had space I wasn't using and things piled into closets that I never took out.
When the rent went up late last year, it was the perfect time for a major purge and a move into a simpler way of life. I LOVE this little gem of a garage studio in the adorable Charleston neighborhood of Avondale.
It has beautiful reclaimed wood shelving throughout, skylights, and even a little gas fireplace! The purge left me surrounded by only things I really love and use. It's plenty of space for me and my dog, Dignan (a dog park within walking distance helps, though!)
