Let's say some friends and I want to purchase an old warehouse and refurbish it into something great, like living/art/performance space; how would we go about doing that?

This is essentially a far-future pipe dream, but some friends and I are thinking of getting hold of a warehouse here in Philadelphia and putting some sweat equity into it to make it into some kind of performance and art space, and maybe even a place to live. Assume none of us know anything about carpentry, masonry, wiring, or really even how to go about getting a warehouse. If you have experience with this sort of thing, I'd love to hear about it.
What I would basically like to know is about, you know, getting a suitable space, the best way to learn these skills, and the best way to go about getting materials and planning something like this.
