Demitasse Cafe: Another of our in-house projects. We were in the process of rehabilitating not only the three adjacent buildings (202-206 Main St), but of trying to recover the neighborhood from the clutches of prostitution and drug use. We had a vision of an artistic neighborhood but could not find a commercial tenant willing to open an upscale coffee shop along the lines we felt would enhance the neighborhood. So I designed, built and opened a beautiful Victorian coffee shop. Just take a look at the pictures… We managed to turn the neighborhood around, and realized our vision of a thriving artistic community.

Ice from the river was cut into block with saws, and brought by horse and buggy to the ice-house where it was stored in sawdust. The ice actually lasted through the summer. Later on a portion of the building was made into a fur vault for cold storage, complete with a bank vault door ! We now have our offices here, as well as a variety of tenants, and house both construction tools and materials for our many jobs here. Project completed

We turned it back into a single family residence, and restored the interior to the splendor it had once enjoyed.
