I have wanted to share a bit more of our house to show our personal style and how we make do in a smaller space. We have lived here together for five years after E’s family redid it (we rent from them–hence allowing great danes!) This is our main room and the heart of the house. It is a combined dining room/ living room, and is where our front door is too (we live on the second level, so it opens into our living room) You can see our kitchen through the doorway. And to add one more purpose to this room, it is where I have my desk.
The desk space is where we house our iMac, our household binder, finances binder, and my daily planner. I promise to do an organization post soon! Because we didn’t want to take too much space from the dining room, we mapped out the minimum comfortable desk space for a keyboard and mouse.
Because of space constraints and particular design standards, we have had to custom build most of the things in our house (even our bed) which has saved us a ton of money and maximized the amount of space we can use. We often joke that our house is like a boat–every inch of it must be useful. I am going to try to show a part of our house just about every week focusing on how we make the most use of our space.
As promised, here are the design files E made before building the shelves. He will often do this either in Solidworks or on pen and paper to help us visualize what it is going to look like in the context of our house. He included the iMac and a standard book to demonstrate the scale of the desk and shelves.

Love the desk! Usually my stuff is just thrown all over the kitchen table, which seems to double as my desk 🙂

Thanks Leslie! I know it is a constant battle! Before I had my desk, it was our dining room/ kitchen table that was always covered!

What a tremendous idea! We live in a very small apartment and this has given me so much motivation to start using space more efficiently.
Thank you so much Jaelan! It was a fun time in our lives and seriously pushed us to improvise. We were much better organized there than we are now because we were forced to be! I still miss my organizational systems there!
