the moment you’ve all been waiting for…


Here are the photos of the finished apartment!   It took about two months to complete, with a few projects to go.  We still want to insulate and recover the space between the ceiling beams, paint the outside door, insulate the garage door and make a garden on our roof, but until then, our apartment is officially done.

As I was getting this ready to post, we found out that our main drain pipe is broken and they will have to break apart a section of our floor to fix it, so I’ll keep you posted on the damage and repair and any other home improvement projects that we take on.

I took a lot of photos because I don’t have a wide angle lens so this was the best way to do the tour.  It might take awhile to get through them, but I hope you enjoy the transformation!

    This is a great space. How did you come across it?

  2. This is gorgeous! I can’t wait to see it IRL this summer! I can’t believe how much you got done in such a short time.

  3. The internet is so crazy sometimes… I live across the street (46 South 4) and I’ve often seen your front door and thought “is that an apt? I wonder what it’s like in there??”. Today I was looking for images of the Chocolate Factory in Wallabout BK and somehow I came across this post… when looking through the photos, I got to the view of the bridge from your roof and…Boy, that view looks very familiar!! I looked up your front door on google streetview to double check and sure enough, there it is– #57. haha. Well done on the interior, never in a million years would I have guessed it looked like that! Enjoy!

    p.s. how loud does the metal place get??

    • Hi neighbor! Thanks so much- we love it here! BUT…Monday thru Friday, the scrap metal DOES get really loud some days and the walls have been known to shake. Otherwise its super quiet! 😉

    thought of a user in his/her mind that how a user can understand it.
    So that’s why this piece of writing is amazing. Thanks!
