The listing on this says it was built 1918 but I question that. It looks more like 1928 to me.
But we'll go with what the listing says.
When I clicked on these photos I immediately knew this was the work of John Bullard, a local designer.
How do I know?
He buys old houses and flips them around OKC and I recognize his style and his staging.
This used to be an apartment building but John guts them and turns them into lofts for one family.
He creates a very industrial vibe inside.
I find myself wondering what the original fireplace looked like here though.
I do like the way the exposed brick looks with the rough concrete.
Lots of big open space.
In this home...there is room for a pool table and it seems ok cause there is still plenty of living room.
Lots of space for sitting areas. I can imagine using part of the space as an artist's studio.
All the walls have come down that would have separated the individual apartments.
All the support structure and beams are then exposed.
The wood is beautiful.
Very industrial kitchen.
What do you think of it? Do you like this kitchen?
It certainly fits the vibe but I do wonder what the kitchens were like that were ripped out.
The old kitchens would have been very small galley kitchens.
Nothing special and probably in terrible shape since they were rentals.
I could see this as a bachelor pad.
All this furniture I've seen before in his other houses.
So I know he designed it even though the listing doesn't mention him.
Very cool bath.
I'm not crazy about those lights. Something more industrial or farmhouse would have been better.
But that is an easy fix.
This bed of plumbing pipes goes well with all the silver exposed duct work in the home.
I think it's kind of fun. Great for a kid.
Out back...landscaping is still needed. It still looks like an apartment building here.
And they can say this is a large patio...but I know its the old parking lot.
But I can imagine this filled with lots of big pots of plants and groupings of furniture.
It could be the biggest best patio, ever!
What do you think of this home?
Would you consider living in a loft space like this?

Check out my post from yesterday where we discussed shopping on Thanksgiving.
I asked my readers to sign a petition asking Target not to open on Thanksgiving day.
