The Tuttles Make the Most of Student Housing

House Call

Name: The Tuttles
Location: Davis, California

We moved into student housing for the price and location last year. Knowing we'll be here three years all together, we want this place to feel like home. Spending a lot of money on things we can't take with us is pointless and we're not allowed to make any major changes anyway. Enter dumpster diving, yard sales, freepiling, and "making do or doing without." So far we love what we've done with this white walled, wall to wall linoleum-ed, just shy of 650 square foot, two bedroom. I don't think it will ever really be "done" though. Changing things up is like my hobby (gotta love freepiles and thrift stores) and with a little boy growing up and playing here, things have to evolve and shift.

Thanks Tuttles!
