Early 20th Century Firehouse Now Enchanting Home

If you missed part I of this post go here to read about the genius minds behind this renovation. Today it is my privilege to take you on a house tour of the old South McDonough Street Firehouse that has been loving converted into a jaw dropping home.

David Keith Braly is the architectural brain and Mark Montoya is the creator of the gorgeous Tuscan gardens out back.

I was just the happy camper who was invited to experience the whole thing first hand. Oh, and did I mention that the first floor that used to house the fire engines is now a working artist studio that turns out masterpieces featured in all of your favorite shelter magazines? Yep. Just another day in the life of. ­čÖé

This is the only way to take your work to bed with you. Please may I have that urn?

Yes, please.

 

 

Thank you for the tour.  Next up? Yearning for a garden party? I have just the place.
