Jessica's DIY Platform
What I Love About My Home
There are several things that we love about our Small Cool Home like the location, the view and the coziness of the space. Most of all we love the personal touches we have added to our space. For example we have enlarged many of our own travel photos. Even though it was hard work, our custom bed and storage area have made our home a uniquely functional and practical space
Biggest Challenge in Furnishing My Home
As with most small homes, the biggest challenge we faced was storage. When we moved in to our home, we determined that we had two needs: storage and a separated workspace. We built a freestanding platform in the bedroom, which allows enough room for workspace, sleeping and storage underneath it. (Luckily we have 10 foot ceilings.) The 2 foot tall platform encompasses the expanse of the bedroom and still allows 8 feet of height to the ceiling. The storage space can be accessed through a small door on the front of the platform or by simply sliding the bed frame over and crawling in. The headboard stays in place at all times. We finished the floor with laminate wood flooring and stained and tiled the headboard to add some finishing touches to our DIY storage unit.
