Cartolina Retail - Demolition Day no.1 - a surprise!

Update: So today was day no.1 at the new building. We bought the building 2 months ago and have been waiting patiently(not) for the tenants to move out.  

There is a lot of work to do before we can move in - but it's mostly what Doug refers to as a 'dumpster gut'. We have to remove 100 years of bad renovations and take it back to the original floors and brick walls. 

Yesterday Doug and the contractor went through the building to assess the situation. They peeked behind the dropped ceiling and low and behold - there's the original pressed tin ceiling. In all it's glory - stretching from the front of the building to the back, complete with cornices and rosettes. It's in perfect condition. We had absolutely no idea it was there and we were literally lost for words when we saw it. I'm looking forward to posting lots of pictures here over the next few weeks. Stay tuned! Also follow us on Facebook for more frequent updates :-)




This is the tin ceiling as it looked in the Tremont Hotel back in 1897 (our building is the only remaining part of the old hotel)
Nice goat!
