Washoe Brewery Building - 3rd floor loft

I purchased the 13,500 sq. ft. Washoe Brewery Building in 2006.  I have had  a lot of  fun making changes to the building since I purchased it. The 3rd floor is the floor that originally held the brewery tanks.  This floor is 1800 sq feet and has a large living room, dining room, kitchen, pantry, laundry, full bath and bedroom.  It is the only floor where the 20 foot ceilings have been lowered to 9 feet. 

    • Rustic Distressed Hickory Hardwood Floors were installed in all areas except bathroom and kitchen.  Slate tile was installed in the kitchen and bathroom.
    • Blue Pine Ceiling was installed in Living room, dining room, kitchen and bedroom.  The red ceiling trim is antique barn wood that was  sourced from the brewery barn.
    • All windows replaced with double hung, double pane Pella windows
    • Paint - the living room brick was faux painted.  The dining room and kitchen were painted burgundy wine and the bedroom was painted forest green. 
    • Bathroom remodel - slate tile was installed to bathroom and kitchen. Glass tub enclosure was removed and shower curtain was installed.  Black chandelier was installed as was a rustic 5 light  sconce above the mirror.  Black and white geometric wallpaper was placed on one wall.  Custom shelving unit with wire baskets adds to the eclectic style. 
    • Kitchen remodel - Bertazzoni gas range was installed, along with stainless refrigerator and dishwasher. Brown granite was installed. Cabinets were stained a darker color to create harmony with the slate tile and wood floors. A pot rack was made from a horse harness found in the Brewery barn.
    • Laundry remodel - High efficiency washer and dryer were installed along with shelving
    • 8 light fixtures were replaced with stained glass or rustic antler fixtures.
    • The living room bricks had been painted white.  I faux painted the bricks with three different colors of brick paint instead of removing the white paint and damaging the 100 year old bricks. 
    • Two custom doors were designed for the bedroom and pantry.  Both have antique stained glass and rough hewn lumber
    • Leather sofa, hair on hide chairs and barn wood tables were purchased for the living room.  Several cow hides provide warmth and complete the rustic/industrial look.  
    • Yellow vintage velvet dining chairs add a pop of color to the dining room and bring out the colors in the antique rug that was found in a 1880's Montana brothel.  An antique stove was painted  blue and white.  An antique butcher scale sits on the stove.
    • Bedroom - White oak feature wall was installed.  The leather bedspread and pillows were used in the bedroom.  Hair on hide alpaca rug and leather rug made from jean's tags provide warmth on the floors.
    • Modern art, framed antique purses and a collection of brightly painted stove doors are displayed throughout.
