Re: Cool residence

I like it! He did a great job carrying the theme through... I have a friend that repurposes century old barns into new structures and furniture in a modern way...he does a great design work. Even designed a rusty metal house for a scrap dealer, it was featured in Dwell several years ago...

Re: Cool residence

I'd live in it.....

The wife....not so much...even though she's a car girl....

When I works, I works hard.
When I sits, I sits loose.
When I thinks, I falls asleep.

Re: Cool residence

When the kids clear out (hahahahahahahaha!), that's the plan.
The wife and I want something weird.

Ideally an old gas station, fire house, church or barn.

HGTV and/or DIY network used to have one or two shows on that explored cool renovated structures that people live in.

A friend was forced to move out of his auto repair shop, it was renovated into a garage themed restaurant, complete with a car wreck every few minutes thanks to an "art work" out front. It stunk, but I have to grudgingly admit its cool.

Re: Cool residence

That's different. Would be a great place to rent out. For as a bed & breakfast type thing.

Re: Cool residence

He did a really nice job of it. His vision of the finished house was pretty well worked out.
I used to live in the Detroit suburbs and we had intersections with 4 gas stations. That could not last. A lot of the closed stations got remodeled into other businesses. My dentist's off ice was a remodeled gas station.

Re: Cool residence

When I was married, I found a cool brick 2 story Firehouse that was For Sale for $40,000. The Wife said no. Last Year it sold for $1.8Mil.

I'm so glad that woman is an Ex-wife!

Re: Cool residence

That would be a really cool place, I could dig that. The house I've lived in now for 30yrs was an old train depot that was moved out of town in the 50's and put on a couple acres a mile north of town, it was built in 1883 and still has the 4' overhangs all around it.

Of course the wife has decorated with a few railroad objects but nothing like keeping the theme like this guy did.
