Garage Converted to a Small Modern House Part 2: Video Tour

Earlier this year I showed you this garage that was converted into a small modern house.

It’s unique because of it’s multifunctional interior design. But also because it was originally an unwanted and abandoned garage.

There are sliding doors that can optionally cover the entire house, giving the resident maximum privacy.

Even when it’s all closed up it’s designed so that natural light still comes in because of the porch and glass sliding doors. You’ll have to see it to get it.

It’s 430-485 square feet depending on if you include the patio area and the upstairs bedroom.

Inside there’s a large custom made piece of wooden furniture, designed by the architect, that provides nearly all of the functionality for the home.

The large box inside serves as a…

  • Closet
  • Storage space
  • Sofa bed
  • Bedroom
  • Bathroom
  • Desk

Without that unique piece, it would be nearly impossible to fit all of these features in the home while maintaining the openness that it has right now.

The Bathroom in this Modern Small House Garage Conversion

So you walk behind the big wooden furniture box and you’ll find a little passage way to the bathroom with toilet and shower.

The Loft Bedroom

Walk upstairs and there’s the loft bedroom which sits on the same box that we’re talking about.

The design here is amazing and thanks to Kirsten Dirksen of Faircompanies.com you get to see it all in this virtual tour.
