The Dreamy DIY Remodel of a 1972 Airstream Home — House Tour

Name: Brandon and Gabi Fox
Location: All over (Loosely based in the Pacific Northwest)
Size: 27-foot, 190 square foot 1972 Airstream Overlander
Years lived in: 3 years, owned

Gabi and Brandon’s plans to travel the country in a tiny trailer caused some concern among friends. Living in such a small space with another person is too challenging, right? Not for this creative couple. “Turns out we get along together just fine, sharing less than 200 square feet, 24/7/365. In fact, throughout it all we ended up getting married and starting a wedding photography business together, so I think it’s worked out pretty well so far,” wrote Gabi.

An Old Chicago Church Is Now a One-of-a-Kind Forever Home — House Tour

Name: Jim Jacoby and Molly Morter
Location: Logan Square — Chicago, Illinois
Size: Approximately 5,500 square feet shared between the main home space upstairs and a design studio and two-bedroom apartment downstairs (not featured).
Years lived in: 1.5 years, owned

It was love at first “site” for Jim and Molly when they first visited the house that would become their very own forever home. The former church, which was built in 1890 and is located in Chicago’s hip Logan Square neighborhood, had been converted to a home in 1994 by the previous owners. Upon first visit, Jim and Molly were immediately drawn to the calming energy of the building and the years of good experiences that had transpired there. Relieved that the building would be in the hands of new owners who would truly appreciate its history, the former owners generously worked with the couple to make sure the home could become theirs. Now, as the newest owners, Jim and Molly feel that it’s their job to steward the building and to remain loyal to its core purpose as a place of joy and gathering.

Our home was built in 1751 in western Massachusetts on a south facing knoll. It sits alongside an abandoned apple orchard that backs up to a small mountain populated with all kinds of wildlife.

A Fearlessly Decorated Loft in a Restored Firehouse — House Tour

Name: Bailey Li of Bailey Li Interiors
Location: The Valley Arts District — Orange, New Jersey
Size: 670 square feet
Years lived in: 1 year, renting

I love the idea of residing in a restored firehouse that is now used as a live/work art gallery that houses a group of creatives from different mediums! It’s like living in a piece of history that is birthing a new story. There were once tales of horse-driven fire carriages that would load up right in my space and head out to save lives in the nearby community. And now there are several tales being created daily of amazing artists of different walks of life that occupy the entire structure in an effort to bring new life and a new perspective to a community that desperately desires a refresh!

Kurtz. This witty multi-hyphenate shares a simple but beautiful Brooklyn rental with his equally talented husband, freelance writer and journalist Mitchell Kuga.

Name: Emily Eaton
Location: South Minneapolis, Minnesota
Size: 400 square feet
Years lived in: 6 years, renting

Emily’s south Minneapolis space may be teeny, but it packs a one-of-a-kind punch, the likes of which you may have never seen. All small space dwellers are faced with the reality of their situation — some conquer and others fail. Throughout Emily’s six years in this space she has clearly conquered the common challenges by mastering the art of storage, organization, and the daily task of bed making. And she keeps things fun and fresh by rearranging her furniture and large art collection regularly.

A Wonderfully Wild & Whimsical Charleston Home — House Tour

Name: Millie Sims
Location: South of Broad — Charleston, South Carolina
Size: 803 square feet
Years lived in: Renting 2.5 years

South of Broad is a particularly beautiful area of Charleston. It is known for a colorful row of homes, called “Rainbow Row,” historic homes with multiple levels of grandeur. South of Broad is also known for carriage houses, window boxes, and tiny European-style streets. It was particularly wet and rainy the day I photographed Millie’s Apartment, so walking into the bright living room was especially wonderful!
