Houzz TV: Step Inside an Industrial-Chic Forever Home

Stacy Weiss and Will Carpenter created their forever home in an unconventional space: a 1920s commercial building that’s been a mechanic’s garage, a tile store and an artist’s studio. Weiss, owner of Weisshouse, a Pittsburgh resource for high-end vintage home goods, and Carpenter, a general contractor and owner of Carpenter Construction, became their own clients when they finally found this space. “We originally lived in a three-story house, then sold it and rented a loft [while looking for a building to repurpose]. We knew we wanted an industrial feeling with one-floor living,” Weiss says. Now, what was once a commercial building is reincarnated as a loft-inspired home.

The rugs placed in these rooms are incredible, full of color and pattern. We’re a big fan of mixing and layering rugs, because it creates depth in a room

The wood flooring is in a chevron pattern, not a herringbone pattern.

I love the shower. The shower would also work for families with little kids or dogs by using a plastic, portable tub that could then be filled by a separate hand held shower. All the water would be contained and the kids or dogs could be towel dried in the shower before entering the rest of the bathroom area. Hmmm... I have a hall bath too small for a good sized shower and tub. Maybe a large steam shower with the ability to use a plastic tub would work? Any other ideas of what to do with a 3X 8 ft area that now consists of a 3X4 shower and then has an empty area next to it?

Can you feel my envy & admiration seeping through the computer? What a great place; I'd move in without changing a thing. Love the bathroom vanity & the chairs in the entry hall particularly but all the furniture & art work is well chosen and interesting without being too 'look at me.' Favorite favorite photo is the view to the master suite/portrait gallery through the hanging doors and deer sculpture.

I really liked this. I generally don't like modern or industrial, so I'm trying to figure out why this worked for me. Maybe it was the classic touches, the leather chairs and oriental rugs, combined with a lack of rust, peeling paint or brutally bare cement, which are often found in the industrial style.

I am a huge fan of authentic -- and I must stress authentic -- industrial design and loft living. Having said that, this is a fairly cool space. My favorite piece by far is the "Complete Boys Department" sign. I do have one major criticism and that is the way the artwork is displayed in the seating area. I HATE floor to ceiling "art galleries" like this. When art is hung too high or too low, and there is no cohesiveness in style or framing, it looks like a jumbled, cluttered mess. Give the art some space to breathe and let the architectural elements speak for themselves.

People forget that a house is supposed to be forever-to grow and change within your needs. Love ur art & lighting-all intended to bring life into your space. Thanks for your vision-now I'm off to hang another piece of art in my dream home.

This is quite a grand space.... I really love those furnishing and decoration choices which seem completely and utterly idiosyncratic .... There is enough breathing room given to each space to let these choices shine. I think I see this most clearly in the lighting selections.

my favourites bits are

the shower enclosure

the custom shelving

the grid of portraits

The garden

I don't think it's accurate to call this industrial chic. Just stick with chic, because even the things I don't like still work. I love the way the shelves are fitted in the bookcase and the refrigerator handles in the bathroom. And the pile of rugs. And the apothecary cabinet. The things I don't love are chrome, the chandelier, the flat wall kitchen and the bathroom floor tile.

IMO, 100% perfect, starting with their taste in art. We own Old Town Guesthouse B&B in Colorado Springs and would love to have some of their eye for design and reuse rub off on us when we make a move to update the inn's interiors. We're in the heart of Old Colorado City and know industrial chic would be a perfect complement to our neighborhood. Awesome!!!! Kudos to you both!!!!

Dumb question maybe... How do you get the window in the steam shower open? We had windows like that in school when I was a kid and you took a long pole and opened them with it, but I didn't see a pole or a switch of some sort to open it...

And glad you left the clerestory windows I think they have lovely light coming through them

This is such a terrific home! So many, many unexpected elements, weird art, gorgeous "bones". It's a home where I could visit and never speak to anyone, just browse and ooh and aahhh to my hearts content, with the occasional chuckle thrown in. And I love the weird headless animal. Just another quirky object among many equally so.

Every view of this home, inside and out, took my breathe away with it's expressions of creativity, specificity to the inhabitants' taste, and high design intelligence combined with a wicked sense of humor. It's the kind of home where two bedrooms suffice for the needs of the owners, rather than the expected three for the sake of resale. I've a feeling this home will support metamorphoses as the owners move through their lives. Well done, you!

Oh, my, my, my. What a fabulous job you have done with this reno. I absolutely love that it is all on one floor. The entry sets the tone, and it only gets better from there.
The great room is so inviting. There are too many things that I like about it
that I will just leave it at that. The portrait wall in the master is
definitely smile worthy. It draws the eye to the comfortable seating below. I fancy
the shower in the master bath, but I especially love the vanity in the guest
bath. Well done – thanks for sharing.

What I love the most was the dialogue by the owners about creating their house and living spaces. It made the design come alive! The experience is similar to a waiter describing offerings from a menu that tantalize your taste buds. In particular I appreciated comments by the wife as to how she selected items that could cost $5 or $5,000 because it was all about appreciation of the design.

I really like the overall tone of the space and especially the kitchen and comfy bar stools and artwall concept. My only suggestion would have been to move the bookcase away from the artwall so it could "Pop" instead of looking a bit cluttered for my taste.

As for the person that asked about the difference in Industrial Chic and Glam I would say apparently it's the lighting. Bling = Glamour.

Simply awesome! Not only is the space visually stunning, the homeowners description of their, as one other person pointed makes the space some alive. It is minimalistic with only the most strategic items used and positioned well in the home. I love it!

I love the living room especially. Recently I have seen living rooms that are so stilted. Chairs that are parallel to each other. How could anyone be comfortable chatting with each other in that arrangement. (Do they hang their legs over the sides of the chairs to see their next door chair person?) This living room invites cozy comfort and Joy with all of its beautiful colors. It must have been a great deal of work and thought. Amazing!!

Great job! I live in a Chicago loft and I too believe you have to start with those things that you love and go from there!:) Thank you both for this story!

I am speechless. I had goosebumps watching this. I would choose a slightly different kitchen but apart from that I love every single detail. And I think what gave me all the feels is how rounded this home feels, absolutely everything is in sync - the design, structure, decoration and the owners.

I loved this space! We are empty nesters too and I would love to live in a home like yours....getting rid of all my clutter over 35 years to relocate to an open gorgeous space. Less is more!!!

Excuse my ignorance , but the TV in the front the window is a good idea? The brightness of the window is not a problem?

The floors, the ceiling, the windows, the shower, the (oh my aching heart) kitchen island! I love this home and I love that things that Stacy had to say about it...especially her un-snobby approach to decorating (not caring about the price of items but if they are loved or not.) Great little video. I wish I could live in this house, but I can't so I'm really glad that Stacy and Will can because their love for the place really shines through. (OH! and the portrait wall is killer!)

I adore this place, top to bottom, my absolute favourite flooring like they have in old Parisian apartments, the artwork and the way its displayed, the black framed windows and shower enclosure. PS I wonder if they'd adopt me?

Agree with others that although I don't usually personally like the mod style this space really works well. And in wondering why as someone else questioned above I think it's because as the owner said rather than picking pieces that are perceived to look cool she chooses pieces that mean something to her and the warmth comes with that. Hence the choice of mod and old that mixes well. I still always struggle personally with the omission of window coverings, although they did include in the bedroom space. I love the daylight open glass feel but am overwhelmed with the night exposure. It is so great to see a space with real individuality and not another cookie cutter version. Great job!

The floor plan design is amazing for downsizing! I love the no maintenance outdoor space and the open floor plan in the living area. Industrial style suits the house very well.

Kudo's to this dynamic team for working so well together in creating such a beautiful and inviting environment. I definitely would enjoy living here. I am sure so many others will agree...

One of the questions I always ask a client during our initial consultation is, "Are we designing your forever home." Obviously, this is one of those instances. I love how this home has a story and through adaptive reuse, it has been repurposed into an incredible home. While it is an industrial space, the homeowners did an wonderful job of creating a cozy environment - where it could have gone the other direction. The use of the apothecary for the kitchen island is so smart. I find the juxtaposition of the new kitchen cabinetry with the antique piece to be stylistically sophisticated. This home has been carefully curated, and I certainly appreciate how each piece has a story about it.

Wow, what a tastefully, beautiful home. I just fell into the Modern Industrial look. Recently moved into a rental 3 bedroom home, 2 bath, but decorated in Hollywood Industrial, distressed wood, director's chairs, Kleg lights -- it kind of looks like a lived in film studio sound stage with a fireplace. I work in the film industry. I love the home displayed here, beautifully designed and well thought out. I hope they enjoy the remainder of their retirement days there forever. Very nice lay out.

Aesthetically I think the place is great! The outdoor space is perfect! Having greenery and privacy out the window is almost more important to me than the interior. If it were to look out over drab buildings 90% of the effect would be gone.

I do find a couple of things to be form over function, however. What is the purpose of 30+ drawers under the kitchen island that you can't access without getting down on your knees? Even then the top row is rendered useless. Clearly, there is a need for the overhang, by why wasn't the cabinet turned around to make the drawers accessible? And making new wood floors into faux old floors? Too precious, especially when it takes so much labor and resources. What's wrong with letting them age with genuine wear? Who would require a 3,500 pound solid steel dining room table? That's just excess IMO. The chairs are just gorgeous; I'm sure Stacy could have come up with an equally attractive table...maybe steel but solid...no.

The artwork throughout is fabulous to see. Also so many works on paper! (Though I do wonder about those so close to the vent window of the steam shower surviving.) LOVE the Venus de Milo mirror in the guest bath! So many great choices. Black is my favorite accent color as it anchors rooms so well...as this design proves once again.

All in all, it's a beautiful job, though the cost even with a contractor and designer working for free must have been tremendous.

Very cool. The work put into the renovation is doable. The big question is: How much are the property taxes and insurance?

Cities should be taking advantage of these abandoned building and homes instead of building these new ticky tacky clapboard sprawling cookie-cutter 'developments'. I could see a huge renaissance waiting to explode in America. This is the time.

I almost never like the homes on Houzz that are live-able and not multi-million dollar...but this one I am mad jealous over. While some of the esthetic choices (the cage shower stall, etc.) would not be mine, the overall design and industrial feel are just wonderful to me.
