This building is original to the Camp Daniel grounds. It was used by the Salvation Army as officers’ barracks. When Camp Daniel purchased the property, it was a two bedroom cabin with bathroom. In the years since, 8 people have lived in it, including Tony Sr and Jo and most recently, Jen and Marceaux. After the Bury’s moved into the Brunot house, the flooring was replaced and then the decorating began.
Karol has coined the theme “Industrial Revolution meets Steampunk”. When she and Tony started gathering items for the space, they didn’t really know what it was going to look like. Actually, they were pretty far in before it really came together and had the feel of what Karol had envisioned.
The exterior gets you ready for the inside with a creative sign (not shown here) that says “The Factory”, all in tools and gears. The door (which was featured in a previous blog) is etched with gears. It gives the look without blocking light or the view.
Also on this wall is a bank of contemporary black cabinets, which were donated to Camp Daniel. They were white, so Karol used countertop paint to get a clean black finish.

|Southeast corner. The south wall is covered in old corrugated tin with just the right amount of rust. Above the vintage typewriter display is a conveyor system of paint brushes.|
|Same corner, but from farther away. The vinyl planked floor is in a distressed barn board finish.|
There’s many more fun details, that I just couldn’t fit in the blog. So I suggest that you come to Camp Daniel for a visit and then you can see it all for yourself!
