(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Another opportunity coming down the ‘pike.

We got an email from the eds at ReadyMade that they are looking for great DIY transformations in smaller apartments (under 1500 sf) to be published in their Small Spaces issue in Aug/Sep. Interested? Read on down below…

For the next issue of ReadyMade–our annual Small Spaces issue, on newsstands in August and September–we’re looking for the best in DIY design under 1,500 square feet…

Do you know of any undersize homes or apartments that have benefited from DIY makeovers? Folks who’ve carved out enviable life/work spaces in ingenious ways? Stories about such transformations from around the country will make up half of the feature well; the other half is open season. As for projects, we’ll feature innovative storage solutions from the living room and bedroom to the bathroom and home office.

A few things we’re considering:

* Build-it-yourself space-savers (New takes on the cubby? Shelving? Media storage?)
* Large spaces divided into smaller units
* How to make the most out of a miniscule kitchen
* News on small creative businesses on the rise
* Architects/designers who specialize in tiny renovations

Deadlines fall over the next month, so hit us now! For front-of-book items, narratives, feature stories, and profiles, email me directly.

We’re also always on the lookout for general Home Fixes tips (i.e. “Double your kitchen counter space by setting large plastic cutting boards across the span of your sink”), so if you’ve got those, please send them to homefixes @
