1908 Carriage House Transformed Into A Lovely Mini Home

What you see here is a beautiful rental house with modern features and an elegant interior. But before it came to look like this it was a poor old carriage house from 1908.

When San Francisco based architect Christi Azevedo and her partner bought the place, they initially thought it was a detached garage as it was named in the real estate listings. They had a real surprise when they found out what this really was.

But this didn’t change their plans for the house. They wanted to convert it into a rental and so they did. The house needed a lot of improvements. It had a rotten floor, no gutter and the water was just running through. The new owners managed to completely transform it. They insulated the house, repainted it and they converted it into a modern loft.

Even though this is a 360 square foot house, it has everything necessary for comfortable living. It has a small kitchen area with shelves and storage, a small bathroom, a shower, an inviting living room and even a dining area. The shape of the roof makes it feel cozy, although it diminishes the size of the rooms. What was once an empty rotten shell is now a great rental home. The transformation wasn’t easy but the ambitious project had wonderful results.{found on dwell}.
