Renovation of The Old Firehouse
Edom, Texas

We began in January of 2009 with cinderblock walls and a leaky metal roof. Our plan was to build new, insulated interior walls to create a gallery in front and a quiet, private massage studio in a room in the rear that used to be a locker room. With the addition of a new front awning, deck, and concrete entrance slab, the bulk of the construction was completed by the 2009 "April in Edom" festival. After that, all that remained was to paint the outside of the building and some finishing work on the interior. With help from our good friend and singer/songwriter Nick Annis, we began the construction of additional interior walls in the rear "garage" area, as well as the enclosing of the 24' garage door. Now the music room is starting to take shape.

During the summer of 2009, we will insulate the rear of the building and add air conditioning.
