My home was built in 1950 and included a detached carport with a large two-room workshop. In January of this year, I embarked on a project to build a completely self-contained apartment for myself on the existing slab of the carport/workshop and invited my daughter, son-in-law and two grandsons to move into the main house. The new apartment was immediately dubbed "The Modernist Nest" by a fellow blogger and "Grammo's Little House" by my grandsons.
It took three months to complete the construction and a couple more months to landscape, but I'm finally in and enjoying my new 676 sf nest-space very much.

Our home is located in the Five Points area of Raleigh, NC, and was built in 1915. The home was originally a 2 bedroom/1 bath home built over a full basement. We renovated the original part of the home and added a master bedroom with bath, family room, screened porch & deck. Instead of adding more basement space beneath the addition, we instead made that new space an oversized garage.

Contemporary Studio Apartement. Please excuse some of the bags in the background....I was packing everything up to move.
40 year old single wide on waterfront totally remodeled in cottage style for comfort as a summer home.
Our little rustic cabin has been kept rustic with no electricity, no plumbing and a fireplace for heat. It is a great retreat for us just get away from it all and get back to the simple way of life.. We do use oil lamps, candles and battery operated emergency lights. We presently are in the stages of building a gravity fed outside shower and a thunderbox. We do have a well and plan on assembling a piston style hand pump to it so we can get fresh water when needed. A fire pit is our only means of boiling water and cooking food.. The cabin is located on our home property in the woods so we have the privacy we wanted. Even though we have a home there is something very special about our cabin and the natural way of living. The best part is there are no heat bills, water bills or electricity bills. and yet you have fun doing things for yourself and being creative.

Updated our 25 year old RV from mauve "pink" color scheme to a more appealing brown and aqua/blue interior, featuring my DIY tufted wall in the bedroom and other glam, romantic accents.
