Oops! Spoke too soon. Another setback.
Sink and faucet were installed....not to mention tile! AND THEN....another leak! Not the same bathroom. Just another failed snap ring taking the blame. I took this after the fix and after the drywall was patched back. Retiling and regrouting on the horizon. Searching for a new plumber, added to the list.
I swear I took a picture of this beautious fixture BEFORE they hung that awful EXIT sign, but I cannot find it. Not to whine...too much....but this is the kind of thing that is repeated on a weekly basis. Just when my spirit soars, there seems to be a little tether that brings me down a notch. It is one of the pitfalls of commercial design.
Viewed from another angle, you can eliminate the exit sign and add in the HVAC vent.
On a positive note, the lift that carries the food from the kitchen to the second floor should be ready in a few days.
This baby was a tough, tough install. Everyday for weeks there was a redo or adjustment to be made. But it is in the shaft and has traveled to the top. Now it's just a matter of closing it up and making it look pretty.
It runs smack in the middle of the bar top. That happens to be the one thing I asked them to avoid.
We might have a bunch of drinkers bumping their heads on the way out.
In the meantime I'm working on the facade. This happens to be marble that is below the large windows on the front and west side of the building. I had plans to cover it over, very tastefully mind you, but Cultural Resources had another idea.
They must be replaced with a similar look and material. I am now getting bids on granite pieces as a replacement.
Somewhere along this journey, I mentioned buying these four chairs.
Since then they have been sitting on my porch backless and seatless while those parts were being reupholstered.
The newly upholstered pieces were delivered today.
Can't wait to assemble and take them to the restaurant.
Everyone is asking when we will be to the point of needing seating and I cannot even hazard a guess. All I can say is, "Stay tuned."
