    How to get a small house spacious – The CJ5 house

    Next to a block of suburban homes is an inconspicuous-looking garage door … “Welcome to my home. Come in.” Inside is a bright, seemingly never-ending room without dividing walls and enclosed by exposed concrete. And no one can see in from the outside – an important factor for Alexander Gebhardt. “At the moment I’m working an awful lot. So when I come home, I want to come home to somewhere with a red wine feeling. You should be able to come in and feel relaxed. It’s somewhere for all the different pleasures in life.” A few steps up, there’s the kitchen area. The work space looks like a DJ’s workplace.…

    Retro Airstream Renovated Into Stylish Modern Tiny House

    Of all of the mobile homes out there, perhaps none are more iconic than the Airstream and today here in California, we’re about to meet an interior designer who has taken a retro 60’s caravan and towed it into the new century.
