Small Cool 2010: Rachel's Modern Industrial Feel

Little Division # 16


Who Lives Here: Rachel (and her two beta fish) Location: Austin, Texas Size: 792 square feet

What is your favorite element of your Small & Cool home? The beautiful view of downtown Austin! My place has 10ft, floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking downtown Austin—I can see all the way from the UT clock tower to the Frost Bank tower to Town Lake. I also love the concrete ceiling—it gives the place a modern, industrial feel.

Give Rachel a THUMBS UP if you think this home belongs in the finals!

What was one of the biggest challenges you faced in furnishing your Small Cool home? Mounting curtain tracks in a concrete ceiling! A hammer drill and strong biceps came in handy for that job. Another challenge was figuring out a solution to filter light through the bedroom windows—I folded old magazines to make panels for the windows, hurray recycling!
