The BigHouse is a turn-of-the-century building, renovated by stripping linoleum from hardwood floors, sandblasting pine bead-board ceilings and removing plaster from the brick walls. Originally built as a dry-goods store, it has also been a chicken hatchery, a piano store and a furniture store. It was featured on HGTV "Rezoned" and in Jezebel Magazine in 2005. This distinctive, comfortable space is large enough at 5,000 square-feet per floor to have a studio on the first floor and living loft on the second, both of which are available to rent for shoots. For 18 years, imagemakers have flocked to The BigHouse, sometimes to shoot in the four-seat, first-class airplane fuselage in the upstairs hallway. Projects have ranged from Tyler Perry's movie Why Did I Get Married, Too and Alton Brown's "Good Eats" to Cooking Light and Playboy. The Granite Room, with its two-inch thick granite walls, connects with the main studio, and they're both opened as a gallery for monthly neighborhood Art Strolls. -- Studio Guide 2011
