Today I ran into a modern yet creative small space I think you’ll like. Check out Ryan and Tony’s funky and cool Brooklyn loft with a view. They share this space with roommates.
Ryan says, “That’s how we afford this cool place. Sometimes there’s just two of us here, other times four or five.”
There are three bedrooms that they rent out.While the eclectic living area and kitchen are the common gathering place for everyone.
Inside this Brooklyn loft they have decorated and used a lot of space saving furniture and items from Ikea.

I’m excited to share with you how two friends took a tiny studio apartment in Brooklyn and transformed it into a 2 bedroom apartment with plenty of space to host dinner parties and musical events.
The guys say the most rewarding part of this whole project is that they did it all themselves which always feels great.
By using mostly reclaimed materials and designing and building their own unique furniture they turned this space into a great place they can proudly call home.
Words can’t justify how cool this Brooklyn flat really is. So check it out for yourself below.

Tim Seggerman, an architect and builder, found this abandoned Brooklyn home in 1987 when it was put up for auction and ended at a price of $140,000.
It had been left abandoned for 20 years and was in complete shambles. But since he is a carpenter and builder he knew he could fix it.
To buy it he needed to put 10% down ($14,000) which was his entire life savings at the time. Boldly, he went for it anyway. From 1987 until today the house has made quite the comeback thanks to Tim’s ingenuity.
One of the interesting things to learn from Seggerman and his Brooklyn house project is how his home has evolved over the years just as he has. His house is always changing with him according to his needs.
Even though this isn’t a tiny house, I believe you’ll enjoy and learn a lot from this project (and video) below.

In largely populated places like New York City and Brooklyn people are forced to use their creativity to make the tiniest of spaces functional for themselves. In this post you’ll get to see how a man in Brooklyn turned a tiny studio into an amazingly stylish and functional two bedroom apartment.
Since he has a roommate, the space needed to properly accommodate two adults. And in a place like Brooklyn, making the most out of a small space like they did can save you some serious money every single month. And that sure adds up over the years.
