Renewed Purpose: When Old is New

While these four offices are distinctly different in design, they all incorporate repurposed elements.

The building that is home to ForSight Unique Eye Care and Eye Wear was built in 1914, so the space where Erika Morrow, OD, MS, opened her practice went through a total overhaul, as they restored original elements such as the classic tile ceiling. Read her story.

DON’T MISS: The before and after photos of the doors that Dr. Morrow’s husband restored from a local historic mansion—and so many other interesting repurposed pieces!

Dr. Keltgen’s husband designed the pipe fittings for displaying eyewear. A machine shop punched the holes, and they constructed and assembled the rest. Read her story.

DON’T MISS: The unique signage on display that was created by her husband’s younger cousin using reclaimed lumber from a century-old farm house on his family’s land.
