Small Cool Extra: Joseph's Cozy Brooklyn DIY

(We were forced to draw the line at 40 entries into our contest, but hated to do it. There were a number of apartments that should have made the cut, were VERY close and we will be posting them as extras to add to the fund of knowledge.)

Name: Joseph
Location: Brooklyn, NY
Size & Type: 450 sf 1 Bedroom Railroad

Favorite resource: Favorite resources include flea markets and eBay.

Pitch: It's a cozy little apartment, and easy to be in. I designed and built pretty much everything in it, over the years that I've lived there.

Your favorite element: My favorite element is probably the kitchen table, which can rotate into the adjacent cabinet to make a little more space in the kitchen.
