Cozy Carpark: 250-Square-Foot Home Inside Old Garage


Michelle de la Vega is an artist – and perhaps it takes an artistic eye to see the creative potential in an ugly red-brown old garage.

Glue-laminated beams prop up the interior, also adding a lofted sleeping space inside accessed by a minimalist metal ladder.

New windows and a side-slanted addition give personality to a boring symmetrical base structure – a new coat of paint and some color differentiation does not hurt, either.

Old mirrors, a bank of lockers, recycled bricks for the fireplace and other vintage and rustic touches further make the small space feel comfortable and homey, and helped keep the cost at just $32,000.
