Located in the Bayou St. John neighbourhood of New Orleans is an old gas station from 1918. The property served as a furniture-building shop and jewelry-making studio before being put on the market in 2003 for $120,000. An intrepid artist named Robert Guthrie decided to convert the gas station into a 2,000 square foot home.
The amazing conversion features a ton of fascinating accents and details such as:
Original wooden trusses
Car emblems are used as handles for cabinets and drawers’
Sconces made from old car headlights
Toilet paper holder is an oil can holder
Subway tiles in bathroom spanning two floors
Staircase landing made from original hydraulic lift
Other features include a modern kitchen, rooftop deck and Jacuzzi tub.
