Slow, but Steady...

The past few days have been interesting. Trying to continue lunch and dinner service with saws grinding and nail guns popping. It's all a part of the experience right? For those of you that have dined with us this past week we appreciate your understanding and support. The construction boys started with the limestone layers and quickly realized this was going to take a lot longer than they thought.
Recognize this? Its the entryway by the bar door. As the stucco was coming off, he noticed a covered up window frame. Does anyone remember this? Way back when, there used to be a service window. You could order right from the patio!

Well, the boys finally finished the limestone border. It looks beautiful! Next on the agenda: siding!

The Start of Something New

We are very excited to announce that we are getting a little "facelift" if you will, outside the building and inside the main dining room! We started on Tuesday by chipping off all the old stucco from the front. (By we, I mean Brad Smith and his crew from Traditional Construction. And by me, I mean I sat and watched!) It looked like very hard work.
Oops! Forgot there was a layer of brick underneath the layer of stucco. Anyone remember when this spot was actually the front door entrance?

Our project, to be completed by July 12th, will include three new windows in the main dining room. Cherry hardwood floors, new booths and tables, outside siding to match the whole building and a few more items. I'll keep those a secret for now. :)
You can see the beginning of the three windows on the left of the building. We are so excited about this project. Its been a thought for a very long time. We are so grateful that this dream is now becoming a reality. Stay tuned. I'll keep everyone updated as new things happen!
