Chris Grimley and Kelly Smith transformed a cramped apartment into a family-friendly home.

The carpet is by Flor, and the child-size chair and Amoeba table are both by Jens Risom for Knoll.
Kids playroom
Along with their dogs Coltrane and Blue, the residence is home to their three children—Rock, eight; Cash, six; and Clover, three. As an example of how the Huffts built the home to be malleable over the years, they designed the playroom in a way that can be modified as they grow up. Matthew explains, “The intention is that their playroom will become their study room. Closets that now hold toys will eventually hold their books.”
The second floor houses the children’s bedrooms and a sunny playroom. The wood floors throughout are prefinished distressed white oak.

Houldin, 10, curls up in the playroom nook which is directly under a side skylight that Pulltab added in order to make the interior rooms inhabitable, as per New York City building code. The custom millwork around the window seat is painted in Rainy Day by Fine Paints of Europe.
Opposite the master bedroom on the top floor lies the sunny kids’ bedroom. A double-sided wardrobe provides storage, and functionally divides two separate sleeping areas. Further storage is placed along the window wall that faces the backyard.
In the cutout of the 40-foot-long container along the northern side of the house is the office and play area. It's a mix of new and old: The bookcase and desk are from Ikea's Expedit living room storage collection while the small table and chairs were made by Freeman's grandfather.

The couple initially painted partition walls between the children's room and their own with black metallic paint creating both a writing surface for the children and a magnetic bulletin board for notes. However, "the black looked too oppressive," Astrakhan says. So they applied several coats of lively lime green paint to brighten up that section of the house.
A deeply saturated blue hue colors the playroom wall.

The couple’s children had requested a treehouse, but the lack of old growth trees on the property prompted Wendi and Lukas to include a loft above the renovated garage. The hatch skylights allow the boys to have a lookout over the backyard, and the chalkboard wall is great for doodling.

The upstairs loft is an office-cum-craft room. Evidence of the family’s DIY nature is omnipresent. Hale built a planter box and art-supply cubbies with leftover plywood. The space is equipped with plumbing hookups in case—or more likely, when—the family chooses to convert the area into a third bedroom and bathroom.
Kid's Playroom
In certain places, the scale of the home is adjusted for children. A standard door, covered in chalk-board paint, has a 48-inch-tall door set inside it.
