The building I work in was an automotive factory in the early 1920's, located in Detroit. It has gone through several changes over the years and is now used as a storage warehouse. Many people would consider where I work a dump. No joke, and I would have to agree with them to a certain point. First off, the part of the building I work in is clean and organized, compared to the rest of the plant. But I see it for what it is. Even though the building has been modernized, you can still see it's history in hiding spots. I wanted to share some of my favorite details.
We only have a cleaning staff of 2 in the entire building, so ignore any dirt you see. I am not a huge fan of the color, but the pattern is da bomb!! The tiles are an odd size, 8"x3.5".
It is throughout the building and mostly white. I just love the rough edges of the brick.
I have to admit, I am very afraid to operating this elevator and usually have someone else help me. But it is so cool to look at! The doors open from the middle and a lever is used to move it from floor to floor, once inside. I usually just take the stairs.
About 10 years ago, the building had siding put over the entire structure. Even though these windows are awesome to look at and I would love to have some sun light, I have been told stories of snow leaking through them years ago. Yikes! Thank god that is not the case now. I will just admire them.
Old fire alarm.
It has been painted over, as you can sees and does not work anymore. The system was updated after 9-11.
Old door handle
This is the door to our storage closet. The door doesn't fully close or lock. But this is something I would love on my doors!
They just don't make 'em like they use to!
Sorry for the lack of posts lately. I haven't been feeling so hot...stupid sinuses!
