We were recently challenged to transform an existing residential home into a commercial bakery and cafe with an apartment above. We set out to do so in a way that respects the character of the old building while maximizing functionality and minimizing cost. Historic elements were carefully retained and major structural changes were limited. After close study of a few variations, a design has been selected that will become Hender's Bake Shop & Cafe. Construction is slated for the spring with the grand opening scheduled for July/August.
