Last week I reconnected with the Anderson family and was invited over for a personal tour of their property. "Wow" seemed to be the word of the night as I was lead into each room. The transformation is nothing short of incredible. Naturally, now that it's a private residence I was more selective about what to share - hence I only photographed the main living areas. Regardless, I think it's clear to see the hardwork that went into this renovation.
The wooden floors are original, as are the exposed brick walls, and both were cleaned up nicely and incorporated into their design. The main thing that makes the home so impressive is the scale of everything. The ceiling heights, the width of the main hallway, the rooms themselves, even the light fixtures and accessories are all big to fit the space. It may seem surprising, but it actually all feels very cozy and warm. I was blown away with how well it all came together - especially having the before images as my only point of reference.
I want to thank the Anderson family for their invitation and for allowing me to photograph and share their home. I hope others seeing what was accomplished here use it as inspiration for what could be possible for some of the other historic properties located in downtown Medicine Hat, Alberta. It was a lot of work, but there's no denying that this home is truly one of a kind.
