First Look: Interiors pics!

So we got into the building today – and I am so jazzed! The place was awesome – forget about all the CRAP left everywhere by the seller – Sue & I have a learned skill to “blank out” junk like that; we can envision it without the garbage left behind and imagine what’s NOT there. However, Sue is NOT so jazzed and she keeps saying “No, no, no – it’s way too big.” In any event, here are pictures of the inside.

This first group of four is from the main front room on the first floor. The ceiling is about 16′ high.

There is a room at the south with an interesting door label:

"Sitting Room" and spray-painted over was "MIss Callahan - Personnel Assistant"

A smaller room at the south.

There is an existing dock area – and a sliding door with direct access to the alley.

The basement was no exception to the “piles of crap” left everywhere. The ceiling down there is about 9′ high.

There is a small bathroom in the basement too.

Wall hung sinks in the basement.

The east side of the basement is a little scarier; lots of old heating equipment.

Front doors of old boiler; about 5' diameter.

The “front stairs” go up to the second floor.

The following six pics are taken from the second floor, at the north end. The ceiling up there is about 13′-6″ high.

The next six pictures are taken of the south area of the second floor, which has “back stairs” which are open (no enclosure around them.) The stairs have great metal railings with oak handrails.

The next three pictures are taken from the east half of the south area; there is a freight elevator (more of a lift) that still works.

View from an area on the east that has a lot of old work tables and some sinks.

Lastly, there is one part of the second floor that looks like it was the office area. It’s the “cleanest” area.
