Architect Steve Carmina, a principal at architecture, engineering and design firm Carmina Wood Morris, sent along pictures of his latest project: his future home on Roosevelt Square. Steve and his wife Brenda are converting the historic building at 9 Genesee Street into commercial space and a three-level residence. The 4,000 sq.ft. building is the oldest building in the Main-Genesee Historic District (circa-1845).
The main living area will be located on the second floor where Douglas Fir flooring restored. The third floor will contain a game room/wet bar and the master bedroom with a walk-in closet and ensuite.
A studio/office will be created on the fourth level that will have a day bed for guests.
There is access to a rooftop patio from the third floor.
Restoration plans call for all new windows, masonry cleaning/repointing and a new roof. The currently grey façade will be repainted a ‘brick’ color.
Carmina expects work to be finished by year’s end.
