When we first moved to California in 2002 we had many discussions with family and friends regarding the huge difference in rents comparing California to Wisconsin. The comment that came up most often was always, "Do you know how much house you would get for the price of a studio apartment in Los Angeles?"
After we realized that being frustrated by our small living area wasn't going to change the situation, we found creative ways to make the most out of the given space since moving back to Wisconsin was not an option. In the end, we concluded that a small home can still be just as beautiful and welcoming as its larger counterpart.
We rounded up 10 of our personal inspirational Los Angeles small house tours:
