See the customized interior of this inspiring small home


According to sources, a grain silo or grain bin is used to store bulk materials such as grain, coal, cement, and woodchips. Given its structure, is it possible to transform it into a cozy and inviting home? Architect Christoph Kaiser proved that it's achievable as seen in the comfy studio that he was able to create within the 190-square-foot-space of a silo.

The oculus that allowed air to move through the grain was turned into a retractable skylight.

A spiral staircase leads to the sleeping loft.

A sliding, 9-foot wide door opens up the living area to the outdoors. It allows natural light to stream into the space.
