Recently new clients came to us with an intriguing plan. They wanted to build a new home on their existing lot located downtown along the Des Moines River, but they wanted this house to look like an old warehouse converted into a residential space. Very contemporary, loads of concrete, complete with a rooftop patio and greenhouse. We jumped at the prospect!
Our clients wanted to ensure their home fit in with the existing older neighborhood, while providing them all the modern creature comforts they desired. They plan to retire and live out their years in this new home, and came to us with a very thorough vision for what that would look like, even including a dumbwaiter for when they no longer wish to carry packages up the stairs. Brilliant planning!
The interior of the home will also have that converted-warehouse feel. Not only is the structure concrete - so are the floors! What a unique style, and such a cool environment to reside in. These baby-boomers are very hip - and really onto something. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see this neighborhood pop up with similar style properties down the road. I think Vicki and David just may be trendsetting this part of downtown.
