Friday Field Trip

For this week's post it's time for a Friday field trip.  I've been working with the builder on this project since early this year when the large renovation project began.  The building process is almost done in most of the units so we're ready to decorate!!!


Friday was my day on site to complete Loft 4's main living space with furniture, artwork and accessories. 


I was so excited to finally see this empty unit turned into something special.  I still have 3 more to complete ... plus the upstairs living space in this unit  For today I'm going to share Fridays work.  Breathing some life into this empty space.


(Early into the construction process with the shell completed)

This new residential project in downtown Summerside involved converting an old feed mill building into 5 beautiful upscale loft condo units.  The builder is Peter Brown of Bayside Builders.  http://www.baysidegroup.ca/  This man has vision, style and true apprecation and knowledge of the building process.

The SGG house project 2010.

A luxury beach house 2007.

Peter and I have been working together over the years on many projects, including both of the above homes and numerous other developments. 


Not only can his company and team of building professionals build beautiful new homes but they have the expertise to turn an old warehouse building complete with 100 year old (plus) beams into something special.  This is the raw space inside of the feed building before any work began.



The original ceiling timbers pictured above... were salvaged and kept in place, adding rustic charm.



 A few months later and the great room is taking shape,. Gone are the barren slat and lathe walls.


Fresh seaside inspired colours and furnishings.   Can I just say that I would move into this place in an instant?  I only wish it were located in Charlottetown... SOLD!

  
Furniture from Moving Designz Home & Cottage.


Another angle of the livingroom amidst construction.


Now that I've shared the livingroom, lets move on to the dining area.


View to dining nook before.


I want to point out the ceiling treatment between the beams. Look carefully and you will notice the ceiling is finished in beadboard... Loving it!!! Talk about coastal charm.  (and I know that fixture is way too high)


Before and another view, this time with a wider angle.


Let's look at the kitchen now ... I love this space. 


Before.


Ahhh I just love white kitchens...


It's not a big kitchen but totally big on style and use of space.

Unit 5 ... on the To Do list.

Over the next few weeks I will be sharing more images on this fantastic project.


Thanks for reading.  Have a great week!

Love the color scheme! You did a great job with the floor plan, this "small" space doesn't feel cramped at all.

Susan,

The theme these days continues to be: less is more, cozy, relaxed, easy and livable. These spaces look great.

To work with true craftsmen is a dream come true. I say leave your ego at the construction gate and hand me those gloves, please.

Peace dwells here well done!
