The restoration of our building, coming up on three years ago.
Demo took a short amount of time, but boy, there was a lot of debris from take down two floors to open up the 14 foot ceilings. See below how many of the window are missing? They were covered with drywall.
Yeah, wood shake was uncovered. But so was the original post office wall tile, so there's that!
All the interior office walls torn out. The first 10 feet of the shop's original terazzo floor restored, and original wall tile made like new (much of it was painted ORANGE).
The men placing the floor tiles were truely talented, and great sports. Not only did I want the floor tiles placed in sets of four to create super large squares, but I also wanted them placed on the diagonal to make the space seem even more expansive. AND I wanted them to all radiate perfectly from the middle of the front door. Thankfully, they were sticklers for perfection as I was.
The building in our first neighborhood that Joe and saw potential in years before. So glad fate brought me here, to this place in Fort Wayne, Indiana, now full of fiber. The yarn shop of my dreams.
