What is the advantage of SMALL? We are forced to live with only the things we really love and need, whether it's clothes, furniture, food, art or books...
What is the advantage of SMALL? CONT'D
...Yet we feel like we have everything we could ever want out of a home: everything has its place, cleaning is cinch, and thanks to the pint sized fridge, we never find a moldy, mystery tupperware lurking in its depths.
What's your favorite resource for your home?
A power drill and a sewing machine. We custom built the record shelf/DJ console to fit the space, rigged the fold away television, and sewed all the pillows, chair cushions, the tissue cozy, shower curtain and more. Our home is a never ending craft project.
What is your one favorite element in your small, cool home?
Everything has a secret space-saving function: the couch is hollow and filled with bin storage, and the flat-screen TV rotates vertically to fold flush against the side of the record shelf, so it disappears when not in use.
