Buying, selling, moving. With its associated costs, it’s no wonder that more and more people are turning to renovating rather than relocating.

The images in this blog come from Small Spaces Interior Design. The 65m2 garden apartment [completely renovated by SSID] was valued at $150k more than what the owners bought it for three years prior in 2010. This, following a $45k construction budget!

Check out the clever storage solutions and open plan living.
