Live music was brought to you by Daniel Krill & Friends, as well as @ToneDeafParrot
Ribbon cutting for Thrive with the Waukesha Mayor, and other city officials was a joyous event!

Storage Master - Cudahy - Final Walk-thru

Today was our final site visit for Storage Master Cudahy. This adaptive re-use took an existing tannery and converted it to climate controlled personal storage. From the start of design to construction completion including all approvals it took 11 months. That's impressive given the property was a massive 99,800 square feet under roof and required all financing approvals plus local and state approvals! #SmallFirmBigResults #GoBigOrGoHome#Homerun #AdaptiveReuse #Architecture #Cudahy #BringingBuildingsBack
