We had the unique opportunity to collaborate with the Free Masons in building out their new lodge in the Selkirk Building of downtown Spokane! This was another highlight project that we worked on from start to finish. The building had previously been gutted out down to its basic frame, and a many historical features were left behind, some of which were left in the final product. Antique Staircase bannisters, exposed interior brick walls, and 1900s era fire doors are among some of those features. Here’s a look at the initial state of the building:
As the project progressed, some of the major tasks in the renovation acted as the milestones. A new shaft had to be dug and framed for a new elevator, the basement and main floor stairwells needed to be relocated, the main floor needed a reorganized layout for additional spaces, and the storefront needed to be revitalized.
With the brick sealed and painted on the exterior, the interior reorganized and renovated, the new features built in, and the storefront refreshed, the Selkirk now stands as a proud lodge for the Free Masons. Some of the final touches that we were proud to include in the final product were exposed interior brick walls, custom fabricated stair railings and bannisters, and walls that were painted to appear as tile, thanks to a local artist!
