I mentioned in my last blog post living at my cabin during the summer of 2014 so I would like to share my living space with you. First I will say that my living space was technically a garage; my parents are planning to move to our cabin at some point in the next few years and the first thing we had to do was build some extra space (In order to sell our house we need to move out but in order to live in our cabin we need to expand the 400 sq foot space, so the garage is for the time being a transitional living space.) But enough about that; on to the space itself.
The space has a large open area, which at some point in the future will be a space for two cars, a fairly large bathroom complete with all the essentials, and a kitchen area with a sink, dining table, refrigerator, and (spot for) a stove. There isn’t much in the space, but it has all of my essentials as well as a potted plant to bring in some life. The “living room” is divided from the rest of the space by the sofa, which floats near the center of the room, and two chairs act as a barrier from the kitchen. Because I decided that I could not live without seeing my books all summer, I brought most of them there with me, so the room didn’t feel so empty.
Lastly, my “bedroom,” was rather makeshift. An old chest of drawers and clothing rack served as my closet, and my bed frame was literally a 4×8 board of plywood on cinderblocks.
Basically, because I was there for only two months, we didn’t want to spend a lot on a bunch of furniture that was more in-line with my tastes. It was an exercise in making the most of what we had so that I could make a space that I could actually enjoy living in.
I will add more photos once I can get them.
Until next time.
