lofty ambitions

I have a slight obsession with lofts. Many years ago most of the warehouse buildings in this city were converted into condos. They are cramped, smelly, and extremely overpriced. But I still would like to live in one!
Then this year the National Rice Mill was converted into the most gorgeous lofts I have ever seen - overlooking the Mississippi River.
They went from this:


To this:



They even kept the interior and exterior grafitti...

And the upper decks are all ready for you to have dinner and parties year round...


Aggghhhh! I want to live there so bad. Maybe when my lease is up on the tiny apartment. Do you like lofts?

I lived in a loft in SF and I still miss it everyday. Loft living is so raw!

Oh my gosh, GORGEOUS. I always thought I wanted to live in a loft, but in two rounds of buying places, I looked at--and passed on--loft conversions. Must not be what I really want!
