David Clabeaux, along with his wife Abigail, have recently purchased 830 Monmouth and begun plans to renovate the building. “Our plans are to renovate the building while maintaining as many of the historic elements of the building as possible. We will be creating inexpensive, furnished single person executive office suites on all 3 floors. We will leave exposed brick walls, original tin ceilings, and restore the existing ornate woodwork. There are some really amazing elements to this building,” said Dave.
830 Monmouth was built in the 1890’s, and is on the National Historic Registry of historic buildings, along with the adjacent properties on Monmouth between 3rd and 11th streets. David Clabeaux’s vision for the building is to turn it into a living museum representing the era when it was originally built. According to David, “We plan to decorate the interior of the building with historic artifacts and pictures from the late 19th century and early 20th century. We want the pictures and artifacts to tell the story of the building throughout the years an the many purposes it served.”
Each floor of the building will have approximately 10 single-person, furnished executive office suites. Each floor will also have a conference room, as well as restrooms and a break room with full kitchen and refrigerator.
The offices will lease for $350 per month all inclusive, and will include, among other things, free wifi, all utilities, weekly cleanings, access to common areas.
“The goal is to create affordable office space for people who need a home office away from home,” said David. “We are breaking the mold on institutional, stuffy, fluorescent light offices. We want people to be excited to come to work and proud of the building they work in and the people they work with. We spend a large portion of our lives at work or in offices, so why not make those spaces exciting, comfortable and inviting?”
David Clabeaux and his wife Abigail moved to the Northern Kentucky area in June of 2016. In addition to the project on Monmouth in Newport, they are also rehabbing residential houses at a pace of 3-4 homes per year. “I love rehabbing houses. There is nothing more rewarding than taking an ugly home, making it beautiful, and handing the keys over to a new family. We are so fortunate to be able to make a good living by improving our community. To us it honestly isn’t even work. We enjoy seeing our vision for each house come to fruition.”
