100 West Main Street, the Farmers and Merchants Bank erected in 1907, is one of the two most significant buildings in the Lake City downtown area. The two-story Renaissance revival corner building is a focal point of West Main Street and Acline Avenue, residing next to the Atlantic Coast Line Railroad. Notable features include its round corners, triparties corner window on the first floor, the corbeled cornice, and the paneled parapet.
Specialty Woodworks assisted with the restoration and repurposing of the second floor into a residential apartment. The kitchen area is the central point connecting the primary living space to the bedroom areas. Specialty Woodworks teamed up with the project architects and designers to create an efficient and functional space with aesthetic features capturing the building’s architectural characteristics.
Custom cabinetry was designed, fabricated, and installed by the Specialty Woodworks team. Our full-service facility provides us the capability to design and craft a custom island with inset shelves, hidden storage compartments with a curved corner mimicking the building’s design. Light colored granite countertops compliment the white oak veneer cabinets and provide durable long lasting surfaces for a lifetime of living.
Throughout the apartment’s interior, we manufactured and installed window and door casings matching the building’s design. Trim work fabricated and installed include the crown moulding, chair railing and base moulding to accentuate the aesthetics of the curved wall. Ceiling tin panels radiate light and color while providing a textured appeal to the living area space.
A lot goes into what we do and how we do it. Meet the team that makes it happen.
