Creativeness is something which is not easily found in everyone. The art of interior designing also demands lots of creativity. But this woman named Michelle de la Vega not only possesses the skill of being innovative but she also masters the art of transforming an old garage into totally a golden home.
Michelle de la Vega bought a house outside Seattle with a money she got from divorce settlement. But the surprising part of the story is that she didn’t plan to live in a main house.
Instead, she was planning to transform her 250-sq-ft old garage into a tiny yet cute dreamy house. Another plan was to rent her main house and move into her second home.
The work of transforming a garage that too an old one, into a dreamy home, is surely a tough task and demands lots of effort and time.
But as Michelle de la Vega planned to do so in order to have a rent as well so she did so and wow! What a magical, peaceful place she created; surely her transformation of garage into a well-established home is an absolute delight to eyes.
Michelle’s dreamy home that was a garage once.
“At that time I was coming out of ashes and knew I needed to come up with a good survival strategy for starting over as a single person,” Michelle de la Vega said to The NY Times.
After a time of about nine months and money of $32K spent in renovation’s work of garage, Michelle’s new home looked totally different from its old, bulky garage’s look.
“I was somewhat out of my mind. I was hiring, firing and contending with men and their power tools for nine months,” she said further.
The different features of her sweet home are pretty impressive as they were being designed and created in an extremely fine and delicated way.
Michelle raised the frame by four feet to create a sleeping loft.
The garage doors were being replaced by amazing wooden French doors. Michelle used many second-hand things from local steel mills and shipyards to design her little cute home.
The ladder which she used with the sleeping loft was on a ship once.
“The garage and its elements were unwanted and defunct things but they were reclaimed and given new life,” she apprised.
Michelle’s vintage kitchen.
Her bathroom is at right side of kitchen, guarded with wooden doors and is quite big.
The living area of home is simple and giving all the decent and classy vibes.
She also installed an amazing wood stove in her dream house to stay warm in cold days.
Michelle also made an outdoor place and her backyard is pretty awesome.
However, we literally loved Michelle’s innovative idea to turn the old garage into a whole new dreamy home and we are sure that it would be as peaceful as it looks.
