I am currently involved in a project to convert a very small flat into a multiple occupancy shared accommodation. Since buying a house is beyond the resources of most people trying to get on the "property ladder" and renting is quite often more expensive than taking out a mortgage...(not sure what that is all about!)..but anyway, this project is all about using every inch of space in a creative way which is also both aesthetically pleasing and practical. The flat I'm working on has concrete walls and floors ...so no room for manouevre within them but with a bit of imagination..having ripped the guts out of it and starting from scratch we could reconfigure everything and make it fit better and make the best use of every available space. As with most projects like this you have to make it up as you go along . Work in progress, will provide pics when I work out how download them!
