Nikki Lloyd and her husband Ryan Whaley long nurtured the dream of returning to live in his hometown in Sandusky, Ohio, USA, a quiet town with a neighborhood pleasant not suffered with the syndrome of the lack of time is common of large cities.
It was then that they acquired a property in the centre of the city, a building in ruins from the early 1900s that previously functioned as a brothel, called The Green Door “green door”.
Even with a huge challenge in the hands of the owner Nikki had already made other reform projects on their properties earlier, but no doubt this would be laborious, because they wanted to preserve. To the total were 300 m2 of loft, that they wanted to make a small office of 70 m2, kitchen and living rooms are integrated, with 2 suites.
Thinking about transforming the stone rubble into a magnificent diamond Nikki and her team of contractors spent almost 1 year between the project and the effective start of the reform. Had to redo the floors of the upper floors, stairs and trims, In the attic demolished 7 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms and 5 bedrooms and a bathroom were on the ground floor, reinforced the structure of the site.
The ground floor was intended for kitchen integrated with the dining room and living room that won a wood laminate flooring and kept the bricks, getting pretty rustic, but at the same time elegant.
The unique staircase has been replaced and the new one was designed to not take up too much space allowing the dining table to stay by your side, the steps of the new staircase were made with wood from demolition of an old barn in the city that had been demolished.
With a major expense to refurbish the entire building, She had to choose to give or not a priority to the environments, the kitchen was one area in which she has chosen to invest, as it loves to cook and receive guests, then made all the furniture designed in stainless steel and equipped with household appliances from LG, in compensation she reaproveitou all the wood of the doors removed to make the coating of the bathrooms.
To get more natural light and ventilate better the room almost all the walls have been removed, in the room only the bathrooms and the laundry room are closed, this ends up forcing the couple to keep the house organized at all times.
On the second floor of the house became the office of media of Ryan, facing the street, to have a private access without going inside of the house they created an external deck, with stairs that connect the main door of the office of 70 m2.
The home office of Ryan was with a very relaxed atmosphere, the original floor was kept coated only with Polyurethane. The meeting table has won the wood recycled from beams that were removed and the tables were made with the ports covered by glass. To finish off the rustic atmosphere two chairs vintage orange 1950 entertain the customers.
