There has been a lot of interest in our loft lately, so I thought it appropriate to post about it. I could have never imagined, that when we were covered in drywall dust and not sure if we had enough energy to eat dinner, that there would be this much of a reaction to the renovation of the loft. There were days when we didn’t know if we were coming or going, but every small improvement felt like a huge leap towards a day where we weren’t dirty, tired and dreaming of normal things like hot showers and clean floors.

If you would like to see all the images, visit design*sponge. We were more than honored to be included on a blog we have such high regard for. It is a site I would visit and say, I want a place like these, while looking around for inspiration.

I thought it would be fun to show you some of the before images. I look back on these and realize when our friends thought we were crazy for taking the space, we were. There was no kitchen, no walls, electrical needed more than a lot of work and I have been in nicer bathrooms at dive bars than the bathroom that was here when we moved in.

There has been posts on different blogs about our place and I wanted to say thank you to the bloggers for taking the time to post. Check out Raina Kattelson, Sketch42, Elements of Style and Hilary Inspired for their posts.
