Llyan Oliver Austria has built a reputation for being able to explain architectural concepts in layman's terms, making him a Youtube-favorite not just of aspiring architects, but of anyone interested in design and room makeovers.

He's also well-known for his reaction videos to celebrity houses, but it's good to know that while he can dish it out, he can take it, too.

In his latest video, he does a walkthrough of one of his first projects: His old house! He reveals it's one of the most-requested videos in his comment section, so we bet you're super excited to see all the big brain moves he planted in his home. It was one of his earlier projects, so it's cool to see what he thinks about it in hindsight.

The house is currently made to be a transient house, but he shares that it was the same house where he did his room tour in 2018. See the original video below:


In case you didn't know, Llyam Oliver Austria is just one of the rising content creators on YT today. He's also an inspiration to a lot of people who aren't the best students; he was in the top 10 finishers of the Architect Licensure Exam in 2016, even if he failed a few subjects and was an irregular student in college.
