In this video, the featured home-owner, Christian Schallert from Barcelona, shows us his DIY, Lego-style home. He invites a few friends over for lunch and to hang out at his balcony.

Kitchen with Sink and Dishewasher
Toilet with Magazine Rack
Bed / Sofa
Fridge & Microwave
Kitchen Cabinets for Food Storage and Dishes
Sports and Utility Storage Space
Visible furniture includes:
Shower & Sink
Writing Desk and Chair
Find out how he does it by watching the video.
“Located in Barcelona’s hip Born district, the tiny apartment is a remodeled pigeon loft. Christian (a Barcelona-based photographer) says its design was inspired by the space-saving furniture aboard boats, as well as the clean lines of a small Japanese home.” http://faircompanies.com
