Built in 1921, my house had an 80-year run as a small printing company.When I first saw this place in 2001, it was filled with printing presses, cutters, Trays and trays with old lead type... and lots of old cook books, calendars and business cards that people never picked up stacked on shelves.
When we pulled off the old paneling, we discovered beautiful horizontal wood-slat walls. It took days of sanding them with #0 steel wool and denatured alcholhol... but it was well worth it.
At 26' wide and 85' long, this single story building makes a great place to live and work. I have always had a soft spot for lofts and large live/work spaces, but never liked having to rely on the old freight elevators in most of the buildings housing lofts.
This being all on one floor with lots of windows and 11' ceilings, gave me the best of both worlds.
