(SPOT.ph) All space is prime real estate in the city. The tiniest nook and cranny could be transformed into something of better use; take the way one family in Quezon City turned an old and crumbling bodega on their property into an aesthetic spot complete with a roof-deck and a cozy-looking bedroom. And yup, the space can be rented out! Which means they've got potential ROI on the P200k they shelled out. Talk about repurposing.
Check out how this family turned an old bodega into a tiny home:
The Lucas couple had long had a pretty unsightly structure at the corner of their lot in Quezon City. They used the building mainly as a bodega and were already thinking of tearing it down to give their children more space to run around. That is, until tiny-house tours on YouTube gave them an even better idea: their own tiny-house-esque hangout spot. "It used to just be a space, a bare, hollow-block bodega," photographer Jay Jay Lucas tells the OG Channel in a video-tour of the space.
Jay Jay and his wife Feliz then set about transforming the small structure into a functional and comfortable space. They ended up spending around P200,000, mostly for labor and to fix the flooring, on what is now dubbed the Valeo Tiny House.
The former bodega now houses a cozy and minimalist with a bed, living area, mini kitchen, and a bathroom. Plus, we can't not mention the breezy rooftop space!
Apart from using materials they already had on hand, "[The rest] of the furniture are really recycled materials from the space in my dad's place
or mga surplus shops. Even this couch. It looks so chic, but we only
bought it from a surplus store for only P12,000. Genuine leather siya," says Feliz.
The family is now renting out the tiny house for shoots; it is located inside the Balara Content Studio by Chestknots.
