SCUBA Diving Tub
The master bathroom tub, like the mud room, was inspired by one of my hobbies. Mike wanted to find a tub that "would be big enough to test SCUBA gear." I don't think this is quite big enough for both me and a tank, but its close and regardless I like the sentiment. Aside from the utility, I really like the look of this tub; the guiding concept for the loft has been putting sleek modern items next to rough, old and/or industrial features. In this case you have the tub and bold tile next to the 100 year old black brick and heart pine floors (covered up in this picture).
The light fixtures in the sink areas have been installed, so I thought it was the perfect opportunity to once again show off my photographic incompetence; don't they look great? The fixtures along with the sinks and faucets follow the same clean lines of the tub, and the cabinetry will have custom steel doors like the kitchen. Mike told me something or other about the mirrors but I don't remember what it was.
Another modern looking feature, Appleseed added "floating" shelving in the entertainment space. Simple, seemingly unsupported, white lines create a cool pattern. These shelves will house a lot of the fun historic items I found before we started construction.
Ben is currently building cabinetry for the revolving TV. Below you can see one of the old elevator gears he's cut to mount in the mechanism.
