Could your home fit on a pickup truck? Possibly. But did it also hold grain at one point in time? That's the case for the home of architect Christoph Kaiser who renovated an old grain silo and transformed it into a 190-square-foot home that he occupies with his wife. Nearly everything in the home is custom designed to fit the circular living space.
"Scrap walnut plank flooring purchased on Craigslist for $350 accounted for most of the interior wood. It's paired with black steel touches. Everything in this room is custom—Kaiser designed the curved-faced cabinets, the dining table, the sofa, and the lamp that has hooks for pots and pans. The countertops are Corian. The Eames Wire Chairs are one of the only non-custom elements."
