What I Love About My Small Home:
Funny as it may seem, the feature that attracted us to our home is the feature that many would consider a deterrent, the ceiling mounted radiators. We love that they free up some floor space plus add a cool industrial feeling to our cozy garden dwelling. Additionally, we couldn't live without our full size windows... a rarity for garden apartments. They allow plenty of light to flood in and create warm pockets for our dogs to bask away their days. Ultimately, the thing that we love most is that we have been able to personalize our space to reflect who we are. We both continue to be inspired by the southwest and have collected many pieces that remind us of wonderful times in New Mexico.
Biggest Challenge of Living in a Small Space:
The biggest challenge we have seems to be a common one amongst the “small cool” group, lack of closet/storage space. Although we do have a storage locker, we still feel as though we are bursting at the seams. The way we manage this challenge is by purging our closets at least twice a year. Living in a smaller home forces you to evaluate what is truly a necessity and what you can live without.
