Small townhomes don’t have to feel cramped. To save on expenses, many builders will add walls and columns to house drain lines or HVAC. Because this one was framed with floor trusses rather than joists, we rerouted those items and removed the column and wall. Although it’s a small space, it feels comfortable. We added a faux fireplace and cut out some drywall in the basement stairwell for creativity and openness.
