If you need some inspiration for your home, we’ve got a solution. Or rather, The Tiny House Movement does. The trend, which challenges architects to create cozy homes from the tiniest spaces, begins with unconventional properties such as school bus or a storage unit! What these places lack in square units, they make up for in creativity, once the designers get through with them that is. One Reddit user decided to flip his storage unit located in Washington, D.C. due to the neighborhood’s rise in popularity. The transformation of this tiny space will blow your mind!
Here’s the storage unit before the makeover. It was originally constructed in 1890.
