Was this a diamond in the rough? Itís difficult to comprehend the total turn around achieved with this adaptive use project! When most people would turn away, this formerly derelict 3-unit apartment house (originally a single family residence) was embraced by a local three-woman development group and converted to a fabulous four unit residence. The interior design reconfiguration and the exterior refurbishment capitalize on the inherent qualities of the original architecture. Natural light floods the living spaces while new bathrooms and kitchens provide modern convenience.
