Small Cool 2010: Grace's Sunny View

Tiny Division #21


Who Lives Here: Grace
Location: Chapel Hill, North Carolina
Size: 590 square feet

What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? The windows. I have at least one facing every direction. They're tiny, but they're pretty bright- especially the one that aims the sun directly into my face every morning. As an added bonus, the neighboring houses are single story, so my views are mostly just trees.

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? Oddly enough, it wasn't the ceiling that posed the biggest challenge, but the size of the doorways and the angle of the ground floor entry to the stairs (not included in diagram, since it also opens into my neighbors' kitchen). Once things were actually squeezed in and shoved up the stairs, it wasn't too hard to find a spot for them. In order to work through that, I made sure to measure things before I bought them, and to have enough friends who owed me favors when move-in day arrived.
