Name: Shelby Sloan
Location: Orlando, Florida
Size: 450 square feet
Years lived in: 4 years, renting

I'm Shelby, an artist, vintage shop owner, and interior design nerd. I live on my own in this little beauty. I really don't think anyone else would fit—it's a 450-square-foot, four-room gem, built in the 1920s!

I consider my little shotgun-shack in Orlando's Thornton Park neighborhood to be a little jewel box. Like the jewelry boxes of toy treasures from my childhood, this little box of a house holds all my favorite things. I'm a collector through-and-through, and consider myself a "curated maximalist." I love color and beautiful things, but I try to only buy the things that truly speak to me, considering the size of my home.

Welcome to Apartment Therapy's Chore-Free Summer. Every weekday until July 20, we're arming you with time-saving shortcuts and hacks that'll help you work smarter, not harder, when it comes to homekeeping this summer. Because cleaning doesn't have to be a chore.

Cleaning the bathroom is an oft-reviled chore, and for very good reason. You're forced to get intimate with your filth—and the filth of the people you live with. It's why "clean the bathroom" is rightly at the bottom of every chore swap list, and those of you who take it on for your households should be praised on a porcelain pedestal for all your years. Or at least until science gives us self-cleaning bathrooms. (Self-cleaning toilets have arrived to the Jetsons-esque present day, but they're only questionably worth it since they only clean inside the bowl.)

Metro Council is poised to finalize a strengthened rule against building homes within 50 feet of the Cumberland River. As WPLN Nashville Public Radio reports, a proposal from Councilmember Jeff Syracuse, up for its third and final reading tonight, would prohibit the Stormwater Management Committee from allowing new residential construction in the so-called “no-disturb” buffer zone. The committee has sometimes made exceptions for projects in the past.

U.S. mortgage rates rose this week after dropping in most of the recent weeks, according to Freddie Mac. The 30-year fixed mortgage averaged 4.53 percent for the week ending July 12, up from 4.52 percent the previous week. A year ago, mortgage rates stood at 4.03 percent. Favorable mortgage rates have helped drive U.S. home sales and the refinance market. Sam Khater, Freddie Mac’s chief economist, said mortgage rates were mostly unchanged, but did tick up for the first time since early June.  “The…

We often see homes where two or three different decorating styles are carefully and cleverly mixed with one another even while creating a lovely, modern ambiance. But the Chiang Mai Residence and Studio in Thailand takes a different approach with the various sections of the house separated from one another to create a lovely central courtyard and a series of walkways. The beautiful home designed by Neil Logan Architect uses a common style and materiality to link the three separate buildings that make it up with covered walkways and woodsy elevated platforms linking one area with the next.

Central courtyard filled with greenery creates a natural connection between the different units

The residence was built on a lot with plenty of vegetation and to ensure that much of the existing greenery was left untouched, the building plan divided the home into three distinct units. The main unit contains the living area long with the kitchen and dining. A second building houses the bathrooms and the bedrooms with the third acting as a spacious and versatile home studio and play area for kids. Precast concrete blocks, and tiles paint the picture inside with wood being used for the series of raised platforms to combine a sense of minimalism with inviting warmth and a serene Asian style.
