Designer’s Home 1.0
It was after months of looking at real estate, that I had my ‘a-ha’ moment. That’s not entirely true. It was my realtor who, perhaps out of some exhaustion, finally suggested I look at the property hunt differently – as a designer. She said, “Buy some space, and make it your own.” So I did.
What started out as a series of wood columns on a vacant mill building floor plan, became Unit 3, and that started the year of carving out a home within those 4 walls. While the rest of the building was being divvied up by a developer as condos for sale, I was busy customizing my own 680 square feet of space within the building. This was, at its core, an exercise in allocating space based on percentage usage and multi-functionality.
