John and Sally McDonald were stuck between a rock and a hard place when it came time to find a new home. They wanted a bigger house, but didn't want to leave their neighborhood in the German Village historic district of Columbus, Ohio. There were no homes to fit their needs, but there was a former stone cutting plant that had once sculpted limestone for local construction.
The building was oddly shaped for a home and needed lots of work. But Sally spruced things up with her interior design skills, while architect John Behal designed their dream home while preserving the building's history. Large side entry doors still remain where horses once dragged massive pieces of stone in to be sculpted. The building is so vast that Sally uses a cart to bring her groceries from one end of the house to the other. Being able to see the potential in this neglected piece of real estate allowed the McDonalds to create a cozy home that fits their personal and entertaining needs.
