No one talks about how much money they spent on their house. But everyone wants to know. Which is why our Budget Breakdown series, in which we provide the real numbers behind home projects, is one of our most popular. And, sure, it probably starts with a bit of voyeuristic curiosity: Wait, that cost how much (or how little)? But these stories also end up being the most human and relatable that we tell. No matter what the price tag, we can all identify with the dilemma about where to save and where to splurge—the flooring or the siding, the counters or the cabinets, that Bellini sofa or a just-fine couch.
We also visit an architecture insider who gets some help reconciling her ambitions with what’s possible on her Los Angeles lot and a group in Zurich translating their expertise as seasoned squatters into a communal housing model with some ingenious modular living spaces. The lifestyle might not be for everyone, but I can see their modules inspiring built-ins and other features in more traditional spaces. Finally, in Oregon, we look at groups of tiny homes built as transitional shelters for people who formerly lacked housing. These communities have recently been presented as a relatively affordable way to meet an urgent need, but we wanted to know what it's really like to live in one.
