International Inspiration in Small Spaces

Think small can't be spectacular? Homeowners incorporate a world of influences to create an international level of elegance in their modestly sized spaces.

Artistic Attic

Inspired by the quaint historic homes of Northern Europe, Gary and Barbara Rainwaters designed a 930-square-foot Tudor cottage. Over several years, they built the home by hand — truly a labor of love. The result: a storybook cottage straight out of Shakespeare, complete with a romantic English garden and an expansive eight-foot lawn!

Gary Rainwaters carved an art studio out of attic space above the bedroom. If you have a garage, attic or basement that holds clutter, consider cleaning it out and using it for livable space. You'd be surprised how much working square footage you can add to your home.
