Budget Breakdown: A Design Duo Give Their San Francisco Loft a Modern Makeover For $70K
The homeowners tackled much of the work themselves to refashion a dated home into the ultimate, 700-square-foot city loft.
When they first stepped foot into their Mission District loft in 2015, Kathryn Heller and Kevin Short knew they’d found what they were looking for, though surface impressions were deceiving. "The interiors were ugly, stained, and completely outdated," the couple tell Dwell. "The previous tenant had smoked cigarettes inside for nearly a decade, so it was particularly dreary and felt like a time capsule from the ’90s."
Even so, with such a great location and no structural or exterior problems, the couple—she’s a designer and he’s an architect, both at Tiny Monster Design—knew that they had found the perfect blank canvas in the loft. "We both had had that urban loft fantasy, and this space was our opportunity to not only live it, but also design it," say the couple.

A lot of people want the gold/diamonds, but don't want to get dirty digging for them. It doesn't work like that. You can't think your way to success. You have to put in the work. Day in and Day out and earn it. How are you going to earn your success today?
But Ruth replied, “Don’t ask me to leave you and turn back. Wherever you go, I will go; wherever you live, I will live. Your people will be my people, and your God will be my God. Wherever you die, I will die, and there I will be buried. May the Lord punish me severely if I allow anything but death to separate us!” Ruth 1:16-17
Happy Saturday Family, how are you doing today? While going through this popular scripture about Naomi and her daughter in law, Ruth; many things went through my mind. Naomi who had left her homeland with her husband and sons went back home empty handed. She returned with bitterness in her heart saying she left full but came back empty. But one thing struck a cod, Ruth her daughter in law refused to turn back even though she was persuaded to go back. Naomi further explained it was impossible to give Ruth a husband to marry and it would be a fruitless effort following her. Ruth insisted on following Naomi to the point of cursing herself if she ever left Naomi........wow that speaks volumes about the kind of person Ruth really was. I want to draw out some points from this story
1) Sometimes we say what we really don't mean .....why? Naomi who had told her two daughter in laws to go back really needed a friend, helper and support structure because she was all alone.
2) Naomi called herself bitter because she had lost everything. Can you imagine if Ruth didn't stay with her?
3) It is a great thing to be good even when you know absolutely nothing can come out of it. Ruth had no reason to stay with Naomi because she had lost everything and to make matters worse she was poor but God who is the rewarded of people blessed Ruth beyond measure.
4) Ruth was from Moab, a people who God Himself had rejected because they came from an incestuous lineage yet she entered the lineage of Jesus' genealogy.....wow, need I say anymore. Please be good not because people can reward you but because God says so.
