This home, oh this home.

Wanting to vacate the Williamsburg area of NYC due to high rent two married architects came upon this 60’s log cabin in Garrison, NY. Staying within a $400,000 budget they brilliantly renovated this home for a mere $50,000 on top of the $335,000 for the home itself. With little to no help from failing contractors, Taakaki & Christina Kawabata finished cedar planks for the siding and all other renovation needs. Their parents even came from Japan to help with this dream home of theirs come into fruition. Open concept and no clutter lead to an amazing home that bares no big walls and brings a family unit together in perfect harmony. My favourite part of the home? The view from all windows….seriously dreamy.
