Renovating the LES apartment of Jim 'The Mosaic Man' Power
This past Friday, Shane Duffy, an Army veteran and co-owner of SD Squared, an NYC-based home renovation and design firm, teamed up with The Home Depot to transform the Pitt Street studio of Jim "The Mosaic Man" Power (and Jesse Jane).
The project is part of the Celebration of Service program, which has converted 22,000 homes and has invested more than $80 million to provide safe housing to veterans, per the news release.
On Friday, the team, including Julie Powell, an East Village resident and Home Depot store associate/volunteer along with Duffy, created a custom mobile work station for Power to keep his tools and materials and installed shelving and storage units to maximize his space, among other things.
EVG contributor Stacie Joy stopped the Lower East Side apartment of Power, a veteran, on Friday afternoon to check in on the progress…
Power said that he was happy and grateful for all the work done on his space ... and he had more plans for new mosaic and artwork for the future.
