Not a place I would have chosen, until I toured it. The building was so full of light, especially the second floor. It also had the right atmosphere with exposed beams of maple, hemlock, and oak. Each level was wide open and full of potential.
I never dreamed I would take on a project like that. Had someone asked me a year ago if I was going to be spending my days working on an old building, I would have thought they were crazy. But here I am. I have helped my husband put on the roof, jacked up the beams from the crawl space below, ripped all damage from the leaking roof, installed new plumbing, painted and painted... it is almost done.
