Going Up (pt.4)…and Catching Up

Catching up indeed!  We’ve been working at a fast and furious pace for the last couple weeks and it has been a real challenge to find the time to post.  Things are looking really great though and, as you’ll see below, it’s getting easier to visualize the finished space.Vestibule Frame_01

This picture of the framing around our vestibule was taken just a few days after my last post.  The one on the right was taken on the same day, but looking back toward the entry door from the seating area.

It’s hard to believe that all of this framing happened in just a few days, but it just shows what a great construction team we have!  Actually, most of the guys on our team usually work on high-rise building projects, so our little brewery project must seem like a walk in the park for them…Bar Framed_01

The next picture is a view of our loading area, where we’ll bring pallets of raw materials in, and send pallets of beer out.  You’ll also notice that one side of the drywall has already been hung on these walls.  This helped to move things along quickly so that the grid for our drop-in ceiling could start to be hung on the other side of the drywall.

Jumping ahead about a week (to sometime last week), we finished installing all of the electrical and plumbing work inside the walls pictured above, passed our rough inspections on those trades, insulated the walls, and finished hanging the drywall.  Yep…all in about one week. Pretty cool, huh?

Well, I guess I’ve spent enough time describing the above photos, so I’ll just post a bunch more below, and spare the descriptions…

  1. Look at all that progress! You guys have done an amazing job. I keep saying this, but it needs to be repeated over and over again. I can’t wait for the opening!

  2. You guys are incredible. What a talented pair my bro and his boy are! One day soon you’ll have the time be able to cross your arms and smile at the amazing thing you’ve done.
