Incredible Transformed Garage into a Livable Space

A divorce is never fun, even if it is a friendly one. Following a divorce, Seattle-based artist, Michelle de la Vega, craved a new project for herself to keep busy. She turned her attention towards her garage, and transformed into a beautiful, livable space just perfect for one person seeking an efficiency-style apartment.

Michele finished the project in 2010 The garage measures 250 sq ft, and was designed and finished for $32,000, which is pennies for any apartment. She kept her budget low, and did as much work on the house as she could by herself. She was savvy enough to utilize materials she found searching in industrial salvage yards. The outcome is the Seattle mini-house that not only gave Michele some new or undiscovered skills,  but helped her through a tough emotional time.

Enjoy meeting the Whidbey; a modern, rustic cottage on Washington’s Lake Whatcom. Actually, the Whidbey is just one of a community of cottages located at the luxurious Wildwood Lakefront Cottages, which is north of Bellingham. The Whidbey is a park model home and was designed by the well-known West Coast Homes company. This cottage holds 400 sq ft of living space with a full kitchen, living room area and a bathroom.

If you don’t need two bedrooms, half of the loft can be used for storage or an at-home office space.

This home also boasts a fireplace in the living room and a large spacious front porch for relaxation and entertainment. A large front porch is reminiscent of much bigger homes and it gives you the feeling of having another living space when the weather is warm enough to do so.

Amazing Odyssey Tiny Abode

The Tiny House Hunters show featured this cozy tiny home with its unique log cabin look. It is still exciting to see all the ways you can design a tiny home and the log cabin look is warm and comfortable. This tiny home is extremely inviting. You may be looking for a home like this one, but you cannot own this particular log cabin tiny home, as it is already owned by a couple in North Carolina.

Kristi and Rafael named this home Odyssey, which is an out of this world experience. Kristi won a battle with cancer and that made the couple say let us live life the way we really want to because we don’t really need all these things or this much space to be happy. So they sold a 2500 sq. ft home for The Odyssey. They set their budget and began to work on the tiny home of their dreams. For $45, 000, this home has a full kitchen, bathroom and living space. They also added a bay window which reminds you of a traditional home though the home sits on a trailer. We wish Kristi and Rafael many years in the Odyssey enjoying the tiny life in a big way.

Cabin Transformed Into Modern Home

Cabins June 25, 2016

Builders and designers work with a team to make stable and valuable housing projects because they know that homes are significant to people’s well being. A home is where dwellers find their own identity and it’s a territory where they have control over everything they have in life.

Here is a cabin that’s been transformed into a modern home, and seeing the living room, it is exceptionally spacious and you can’t believe that it’s a tiny home. The dining room has enough space for the whole family to sit and enjoy their meals. Who would think that this used to be a plain, aluminium-sided farmstead?

Great thanks to San Francisco Architecture and Design Firm Design Blitz. This firm transformed this and it really looks entirely altered and it looks so gorgeous now. It is originally a 500-square-foot structure owned by the Horton family since it was built in 1942 as a holiday home. When the Horton family thought to make the house their full residential space, they needed a house remodelling.

Hence, the team of Design Blitz remodelled the 500-square-foot addition. Its remodelling budget is really reasonable for it only costs around $200 per square foot. Imagine this house transformation necessitated a broad work which included reframing the old original house.

After just about 75 years, the Hortons’ abode stood very beautifully and the entire new exterior within a rustic creek bounded by California redwoods, it is evident that the altered house is exceptionally stunning. The aluminium framing is absolutely lovely and its and cedar siding amid added contemporary style carries a new spirit to its interiors. Guests can also notify the unique openings beneath the extension. This transformed cabin is really an awesome remodelling project!
