The interior brick walls along the stair that were once covered in black char from the 80’s fire have been scraped. The stairs have been rebuilt leading to the second floor.

Heading into the second floor, the window and door opening from the fire was preserved showing the fire damage.

Where there once was a hole in the floor, now there is a kitchen finished with Alberene soapstone counters and Wolf Cabinets.

My office space is generous enough for a meeting table in addition to my desk. The wall behind is a dry erase board using Sherwin Williams system.

Several of my old models from college and a few 3-D printed models are on the file cabinets.

In our conference room we have a new table and chairs. What do you think? Again, there was no floor here a few months ago.

Our new old lights have been redone to be energy-efficient and to preserve the patina from years of use. Thanks to Live Wire for their wonderful work.

Maybe best of all, we have a large storage closet with lots of shelf space.

Stop by and visit. Let us know your memories of the space. If you have any pictures from what the building used to be, we would love to see them.
