We always love a good before and after photo comparison, especially when the transformation is so close to our hearts and our desks! A labour of love and continuous work in progress with a pause to capture the same view above as the demolition and building progressed for our new office home. The biggest surprise was the original beautiful wooden beams and joists that had been hidden behind the gloomy acoustic ceiling tiles. Stay tuned for final photos once the work is complete.
