At Home with: John + Jasmine Johnson

After being transferred from Oklahoma City, Okla. as the running back coach for South Dakota State University’s football team, John Johnson and his wife, Jasmine, were on a time crunch. “Pretty soon fall was about to be here, and practice was about to start,” said John.

Luckily, a brand new building, The Lofts on Main, was wrapping construction just outside of downtown Brookings. The company, Brookings Built Green, approached the couple to be one of the very first tenants of the 23 studio/loft apartments and they moved in (early) this past August.

“It’s a really cool spot, in a really great area,” described John, who was drawn to the new, modern space.

As they entered the 350 square feet unit, they knew they had to only bring what was necessary for the move. There are options to have lofts fully furnished, and the Johnsons thought that was the best move, being that they were keeping their home in the Southern Midwest.

“It even came with dishes and pots and pans,” said Jasmine. “Even the box spring was in here, we just had to get a mattress.”

Entering their home, it is definitely cozy. The nine-foot ceiling opens up the room immensely, and has a Haiku ceiling fan. On the main floor is the kitchen, the living room, one bathroom, and two built-in closets and wardrobes.
