An Indiana couple was faced with an interesting dilemma. They were trying to renovate a total wreck of a foreclosed home while living in an apartment. With their apartment’s lease coming to an end and no end in sight for their renovation project, they had to make a tough decision about where they were going to live. The couple chose the dark horse option by moving into the foreclosed home’s garage, which was a meager 350 square feet in size. If you’re thinking this is a sad story then prepare to be dazzled!
The unbelievably creative solutions the couple came up with for making their miniature home livable are stunning. Aptly dubbed “Bunker”, the tiny home manages to make every single feature adorable and functional. The style is an unusual mix of modern and cabin. There are cedar-planked walls pushed right up against a bright orange sofa. It’s a tricky style to pull off, but the couple manages to blend the elements incredibly well by thinking through every aspect of the decor. The house is simply too tiny to fill it with unnecessary filler!
The home has a lofted master bedroom with a DIY steel wire railing that overlooks the living room and kitchen, which is essentially the entire downstairs of the home. The living room and kitchen utilize open floor plans to connect the two spaces. The kitchen also eschews cabinetry and features open shelving instead. This keeps the room from feeling bulky. The result is an airy, spacious room that feels comfortable and cozy without feeling claustrophobic. The lofted bedroom only covers half the floor space, which means that the other half of the house has vaulted ceilings. This goes a long way toward making the home feel much bigger than it really is.
Bunker is a remarkably beautiful home that will make you want to immediately downsize your current dwelling. Check out all the photos in the full article below!
