It’s been nearly a year since I moved my company, Threshold Investment Properties, into my current building at 2654 Gravois and I haven’t stopped working on it for one minute. The building has quite a ways to go before its done, but the office itself is nearing completion. The best example of this transformation is the nearly complete storefront.
Originally a hideously painted, paneled monstrosity, after months of planning and work, the structure is up, patched, primed, painted and now clean. I’m still working on the stained glass, doors and signage, but the bulk of the work is done.
The new section of the storefront is composed of 3″ x 8″ Douglas Fir boards, which I had to have custom milled. There are 23 panels of double paned glass, which do a good job of keeping out the noise and extreme temperatures. I tried to do something a little different to give the place some character and I have been very happy with the results thus far.
I’m still kicking around ideas for the doors and sign, but I hope to have that figured out and have the money to do the work by November. I hope to have the entire office finished by that point too. When I am done, I will be sure to post pics and a video of the whole project as this place has been my love-hate obessesion for over a year. In the meantime, check out the storefront progress pics.
