A couple of months ago, I moved into a garage with a small apartment attached. Yes...you read that right!
I think my garage is bigger than my apartment...

My teeny apartment is just 750 square feet...but I love it.
I'm the first one to ever live in it, and it's the first time in my life I've ever lived in a place all by myself.
Family is close by, and I've got some great neighbors. I'm good!
My Teeny Tiny Front Room
It's a bit of a challenge to decorate and furnish a small place and still be comfortable without being overly cluttered.
For 2 months it's been pretty bare! I think I'm up to decorating now since stores are starting to open up.
If you remember, I sold most of my furniture in Texas to the people who bought Rivercrest Cottage. What they didn't buy, I gave away.
Looking back, it wasn't a smart move. LOL!!! We had two storage units filled with "pretties" and no furniture when we got to Mississippi!
When we bought the Mississippi house, I bought new furniture trying to quickly make it a home for Wild Bill. It felt like we were going to have a fresh start! That didn't work out...
With Wild Bill gone so soon, I gave our new furniture to the people who bought the house and went to
Most of my special "decorating stuff" I have left has to go into the oversized garage in bins. It was love at first sight for the garage...
Length of Garage Is One and A Half
There's a small driveway in front of the garage, so I can leave the car outside and use the garage as an entertaining area. There's no room for a table in my apartment, but in a pinch, I could put folding tables and chairs in the garage if I needed to feed people.
Garage On Left Is Mine, My Porch On Right
I want another ping pong table in the garage like we use to have. That is, if social distancing ever ends.
Illinois tends to get cold. The garage has a wall heater to keep it warm in winter.

I won't use it unless I need to do some work out there. I don't think I'd want to pay the bill for heating it more than just a little.
Thanks for dropping by!
