Don't you love the magic and romance of a ship's cabin? Spaces like this served as the inspiration for my most recent renovation. Although I am two screws and a contractor short to have my gorgeous new custom stainless steel art rail from www.stylegarage.com installed on the main floor, my home loft home… Read Full Entry

When I embarked on the renovation journey of my Movie House loft I, well, reached for the stars. This place is my version of a bespoke hotel residential suite. Executing a deluxe reno to the highest calibre and standards is not easy. Perfection is in the details. And given there are still a few more… Read Full Entry

August 18th, 2011 | Renovating The Movie House Loft

You may recall my self-indulgent whining back in February during the early days renovating my Movie House Loft. At the time I struggled over what original builder’s grade fittings I would keep and what items I would turf. Like everyone facing a hefty home improvement expense, some times one can get distracted trying to save… Read Full Entry

Oh My! Getting the final finishing details executed at my Movie House Loft Renovation has slowed to a tortoise crawl. It's taking forever for the glass railings, the mirror backsplash, and some of the custom built-in add-ons to be installed. Sigh. Once that's done I've got to get the painter in to… Read Full Entry

After seven months of a substantial renovation to my Movie House Loft, chronicled in this very blog starting with the Yucky Part of Renovation, I am ninety-five percent away from completion. Wow! It's so close to the finish line all I want is for it to be done. But it's… Read Full Entry

A Little Frayed

Do you remember the Calgon commercials from the 70s? For the past two days, from sunrise to sunset, there has been a revolving door of trades at my Movie House Loft. It's exciting and exhausting at the same time. Hopefully, next week all the major install will be complete. I'm completely spent… Read Full Entry

Kitchen Countdown

June 15th, 2011 | Renovating The Movie House LoftCollege Street/Little Italy

Could you live without a kitchen for a month? It's been four weeks since I moved back into my still incomplete Movie House loft. Amongst other items like mirrors, railings and countertops, I've been waiting for the kitchen which I ordered back in January, to arrive. Sigh. Living under seige… Read Full Entry

The Never Ending Move

May 12th, 2011 | Real EstateRenovating The Movie House Loft

I know, moving isn't fun for anyone. In fact, I'm one of those realtors who can keep calm, carry on guiding other people through the stress of relocating yet practically falls apart when undertaking it himself. I loathe it. Especially when it takes four days to complete!   Yesterday the movers came,… Read Full Entry

The Yucky Part 3 Of Renovation

April 30th, 2011 | Renovating The Movie House LoftCollege Street/Little Italy

If smarty pants Benjamin Franklin had written in 1789 "Nothing is certain but death, taxes and construction delays", I have an inkling this founding father's legacy as genius polymath might have been elevated to enlightened soothsayer. This alternative quip as common lore could have single handedly slowed down America's quest to build bigger and better, which might have lowered the collective blood pressure, improved relations with their contractors, and… Read Full Entry

Back in January, I closed the sale of my Button Factory loft after thirteen years of ownership. Click HERE for a peek at my past. I then moved into a breath-taking 3000 square foot Vintage Annex Apartment four-month sublet:   Click HERE for a look at my Home Sweet Temporary Home. All while embarking on a… Read Full Entry
