SEE IT: Man Buys Rundown Fire Station, Turns It Into Beautiful New Home
Renovations| | By Margo Gothelf
When a developer had to choose between renovating a dilapidated building or demolishing it, he choose to put in some hard work and revive the building.
Kent Hardman bought a burnt-down fire station in Cincinnati for just $1.00. The building had been abandoned and left alone for 30 years. However, Hardman was able to see the beauty in the structure and decided to give it a makeover.
Hardman transformed the first level of the fire station into a bar and pizza parlor. The remaining floors of the building became apartments. Hardman even decided to settle into one once the building was complete.
For Hardman, the best part of the renovation is seeing people stop to check out his project.
“This is the coolest thing, watching people stop by and look in, because for 35 years there was nothing in there,” Hardman explains in the video below.
Thanks to Hardman, a small piece of history has been well preserved for the community to enjoy.
