Project (‘1)4

Project (‘1)4

Eliza lives in a small row house at the Belgian seaside, together with her partner and newborn daughter Lucet. Her home proves that appearances are deceptive, as there’s a lot of space (and stories!) hidden behind that small façade.

Eliza and Elwin bought their house in 2013, after bidding for it at a public auction. “I never called it ‘a house’, however, as it had more similarities with a ruin.” There was no running water, no sewerage and the garden looked like a jungle… but Eliza and Elwin did saw its potential, and their friends and family who visited the house together with them, too. They started the demolition works in August 2013, and began reconstructing it in February 2014. Five months later, they could finally move in. As Eliza launched her blog in the same period, the renovation progress got its own name: ‘Project (‘1)4', as number 4 is their house number and the biggest renovation works were done in 2014.
