residential design

when you see a room like this, do you panic a little bit?  late 19th century structure, plaster and lathe, machine hewn collar ties, knob and tube wiring, obvious signs of a chimney fire up above at some point,  generations of old wallpaper, and absolutely no sign of any insulation.

this, my friends, is a sight that makes me happy.  this is a room waiting to happen.  this is a chance to save a building, make some architecture happen, and turn unlivable space into something beautiful-- home.  my heart races a little faster, my head comes alive with crazy sparkling ideas, and i feel happiness coming in from all sides.

this is what that room became.   see what i mean?

i see possibility in all kinds of things.
