By far the number one question we get when we tell people that we’re
buying bought a firehouse is “Does it still have a pole?” So, let’s clear that up right away. It does have a pole. Just one. When it was still in use it actually had 5 (at least that’s what we assume by the number of “pole closets”). The pole goes from the second floor Captain’s bedroom into the dining room (hence the name of this blog…)
Today we closed on the firehouse, so now it’s all ours – all 5,200 square feet of it. It’s more than enough space for us, our Great Dane (Mojo) and our photography business. It’s certainly not perfect. In fact, I don’t think you can find any section of this space that is perfectly done. We have holes to patch, lighting to run, walls (and ceilings and floors) to paint, windows to replace and furniture to build. But when we look, we see it… our dream space.
Today, we’re just giving you a peak (and I’m doing a very white, nonrhythmic happy dance) and celebrating that we finally have the keys. We’ll be back over the next few days with more in-depth tours and then frequent updates as we make this space our own.
