Erie Loft rustic-living-room
 

Erie Loft

After years of ignoring its original warehouse aesthetic, due to a developer’s ‘apartmentizing’ of the building, this 2,400 square foot, two-story loft has been rehabilitated to show off its industrial roots. Layers of paint and drywall have been removed revealing the original timber beams and masonry walls while accommodating two bedrooms, master suite, and a lofty, open living space at the ground floor. We wanted to avoid the lifeless feeling usually associated with industrial lofts by giving the space a warm but rustic aesthetic that we think best represented the original loft building.

Fire Hazard - Is there any type of fire hazards having the wood upto the fire place? any recommendations? We were considering doing something similar but with the wood slats upto the gas fire place.

Hi Jonathan, This fireplace happens to be an enclosed, gas insert model. If it were a wood-burning fireplace I would not recommend this kind of surround. Best to go with stone or metal in those cases.

The fireplace surround was part of a larger project in this space, so its hard to put an exact cost on it. If this were stand alone project I would estimate around $3K to demo the existing surround and construct this new one. Not including the price of the fireplace insert itself, of course.

Thanks for the estimate. Not expensive. It's on my dream list.

Thanks for the comment. The finish is just a clear poly. The color of the wood was beautiful on its own.

The masonry is real, of course. The building is an old warehouse.

What type of insert is this? - I absolutely love what you have done here with the fireplace and want to reface our terrible brick one and do this with reclaimed wood. I have had trouble finding the appropriate insert and dealing with the codes etc. Questions: 1). Is this gas or wood burning insert? 2) Which insert is it (make & model if possible)? 3) What codes are required (i.e. distance from insert to combustible material (i.e. the wood). Thanks so much. I am really really trying to do this.

This is a gas fireplace. It was existing in the space. We removed the surround, mantle, etc and reframed and reclad the surround. Every code is different, but in Chicago you need to keep a non-comustible surface in front of the fireplace (aka, hearth). Some fireplaces also have manufacturer recommendations as to where combustible areas should/shouldnt be.

beautiful wood surround! looking at doing this for one of my boys' bedrooms in a new build. Should you come across a source, I'd be very grateful. Loved the way different items are juxtaposed! Kudos.
