The garage is often the part of the house which gets overlooked. It may not be as important for you as the living room or bedroom but, when you think about it, it’s your car’s home.

When you think of houses or any other structures built from shipping containers you usually imagine something small and compact. Well, bigger projects can also be created. For example, this is a residence found in Queensland, Australia. It’s a big home with 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms, a study, a home office, a workshop and a gym and it was built using a total of 31 shipping containers.
The house was designed by Todd Miller of Zeliger Buile. It measures a total of 6,000 square feet and it’s an impressive on the outside as it is on the inside.
Not everyone enjoys to live in a small space when something bigger and more spacious is available. However, it’s all about preferences. For Andrew and Gabriella Morrison, the perfect home measures 221 square feet and was built by the couple.

Adding an extension to an already existing residence is quite common. But building a glass extension is a whole different story.

Featuring an eclectic design, this charming country house combines elements from the modern, industrial, rustic and classical styles, all melted in a beautiful mix and balanced throughout. The building is a villa in Mallorca and it was designed by Mastre Paco. The main concern when designing it was achieving a strong connection with the outdoors and creating a relationship between the two environments.
That was done by using materials such as stone and wood. The stone facade gives the villa a bohemian look, especially with the beautiful greenery surrounding it and complementing it with color.
The wooden shutters are also a very charming feature. The interior is a little different, here you find white beams and natural stone walls which, combined, create an unexpected décor. The flooring in the living area has a rough texture and it’s an element which maintains the organic and natural look and doesn’t let the interior become too modern.
