Our Downtown Loft--Demolition Stage

We are working with an amazing couple who have been the catalyst for downtown revitalization. You may visit their website and see completed projects/examples of their work at We have been waiting on one building to be completed (inspection is this Friday) for the current commercial tenant of our loft to move out completely. The current tenant has allowed some demolition to begin with the exception of removing plaster from the brick due to the noise. We will be in the biggest loft on the top/third floor. Don't let these pictures scare you!

We are excited about our future and urban living! The walls will be exposed brick. The floors original hardwood. Open living area: kitchen/dining/living with curved walls... So tell us what you think!

The Basics

Michael and Talina Ripper met online and when they met in person, they knew they had found something special, a once in a lifetime love. Michael obtained BFAs in both Wood Design and Ceramics from ECU. Talina has always been a creative/artistic spirit, but has her BSN from ETSU and still works as an RN. Talina has three sons, Seth (17), Aaron (8), and Jacob (7). Michael and Talina have a son together, Quinn, who is 17 months. They are getting settled in their downtown loft just around the corner from Michael's studio and the gallery. Their dream of living their art is coming true!
