How a Couple Turned This 1,100-Square-Foot Bungalow Into a Minimalist’s Dream

Abbey Westlake, a real estate agent, and Andrew Peycha, an artist, bought their “grandma special” of a bungalow in Collingwood, Ont., for $341,141. The couple largely tackled the renovations themselves, and for three months of construction, lived in an RV in their backyard with their 12-year-old son Rory and their two dogs. Two years and $275,000 later, and the once old-fashioned 1,100-square-foot house with little rooms and low ceilings bears no resemblance to its former self. Ample white space, judicious hits of splashy artwork and repurposed wood elements make this airy, minimalist home a joy to behold. It’ll have you de-cluttering in your own home! Enjoy this video tour of the bungalow that showcases the power of letting spaces breathe.
