The Michelle De La Vega 'Mini Home' Makes Use of Unusual Space

The 'Mini House' created by Seattle-based designer Michelle de la Vega has done an incredible job of domesticating an unusual structure. The fully functional home was once a garage, and its previous usage accounts for the space's tiny 250-square-foot size.

Vega's reconstruction of the garage includes a loft bedroom, a fireplace and an upscale bathroom. The addition of four feet made room for some extra household additions, all of which have been custom built, restored or repurposed.

Vega is now consulting builders on her minimalist framework, specifically with those who wish to erect their own version of her Mini House. As such, her expert knowledge may bring about new architectural conversions of storage units in the near future.
