The Philadelphia Inquirer features a plumber's storage garage that was converted into a home. After one of the owners suffered from a fall, they wanted a space that would be easier to move around in. They were originally going to convert the 4,000 sq ft space into a more traditional 2- or 3-story home, but ended up keeping it as a loft...

Shown above the jump is the two-story living/dining area, which has several skylights. Shown on this page is the guest room.

The loft stretches across a city block and includes two gradual staircases. The open space allows the couple to display their art collection and host art openings and large parties.

The garage/loft house will be open to the public on October 19th as part of Philadelphia's Center City Residents Association's 50th Anniversary Tour. Let us know if you get to see it!
