Crawl Space Design

When you live in a teeny tiny apartment like I do, every bit of space is valuable. You learn to maximize your space and use every little inch to its fullest. I saw this image (below) of a small space under the stairway which the designer used for a tiny dog room!

I guess the smaller dog has more privileges and gets the space under the stairs. How cute is this and what a great use of the space under the stairs! By Janet Simon.

This room by Christopher Maya rates as one of my top favorite rooms of all time. They found this crawl space and made it into a secret little room slash fort for the kids. It reminds me of this weird little room in my father's office at our old house. My sisters and I used to play up there and slide down the ramp into the room! Tres fun.

I think my therapist would say these were great designs for helping me get back to the womb! If you charge less per hour than my therapist, I'd like to hire you.

Anonymous--you are hilarious! Please hire me. I'll make your nook very nurturing and soothing. Funny idea--i'd never thought of it like that.
