A Seattle Garage Turned Home

I came across this NY Times profile of Michelle de la Vega's converted garage in Seattle and was immediately inspired to buy a garage. The products of her labor in converting the structure are more than admirable in themselves, but the reason for doing so (renting the main house for a steady income, while converting the adjacent garage into her own home) is even more clever. Blessed by an abundance of nearby industrial salvage yards, the space draws much of its character from the revived fittings and fixtures --topping the list: the industrial sink set an impressively paired down kitchen. See the full article and slideshow at the NY Times.
