The Stable Building is attached to 1213 NP, home to Prairie Roots Food Co-op, a full service grocery store!

This original stable was constructed by Haggart Construction Co in the early 1900s. It has been vacant since 2015, and prior to that it was used by Mathisons Printing for cold storage.

The stable includes two stories, approximately 2,000 SF per floor and is built slab on grade. When the building was purchased in 2015 it had transit siding, which has been removed to expose what is believed to be the original siding. As this was originally constructed as a stable, the building lacked modern systems (plumbing, HVAC, electrical) insulation, weather tight windows, etc. The unique interior space is result of the large volume created by the gable/hip roof and the exposed original framing and siding.


The building received extension renovations to convert it to an occupiable space:

  • Roof – strip existing shingles, repair decking as needed, add 2 layers rigid insulation and re-shingle with commercial asphalt
  • Siding – 4-6” lap siding
  • New windows (metal clad wood) & doors
  • Interior, all walls stripped to studs (the main floor T&G wall boards will be salvaged), insulated and sheetrocked (including upstairs walls, but not ceiling).
  • Floor – new concrete topping on main, upstairs stripped of all wood flooring (salvaged) and new subfloor installed
  • Stairs – rehab existing stair and add new stair in new penetration through 2nd level
  • Electrical – new 200A or larger service off meter bank in basement of 1213.  Code outlet distribution and code lighting.
  • Mechanical – standalone air handlers (GFA) with condensers on ground.
  • Sprinkler – tap off 1213 and standard distribution.
  • Two bathrooms with two fixtures per sex.
  • Structural upgrades to the foundation and main floor columns.
  • Soffits, fascia, gutter and downspouts.
