Durham, North Carolina is home to many old tobacco warehouses no longer in use. Some warehouses have been converted into homes and we were lucky to get a look inside of one. The newly converted condo preserves the old warehouse features in an environmentally-friendly way. More info and photos below the jump...
We love the high ceilings and exposed wood beams. The photo above shows the view into the living room from the hallway/entry.
The space is divided into two floors, with the bedroom and bathroom upstairs and the living room and kitchen on the first floor. Above and below and photos taken of the living room from the second floor. The warehouse windows let in an enormous amount of natural light. Ceiling fans are installed in the rooms to keep energy use to a minimum.
Timber beams from the original warehouse were preserved and used in the new condo.
How would feel about living in a former tobacco warehouse?
