I’m so glad Ray put the first coat of paint on the siding before it went up. It still needs another coat of paint, but even with just one coat it makes it look closer to being finished.
While the outside is starting to look complete, there is still a lot of work to do inside the store. Ray’s been working hard on all the dry wall work. First putting it up, and then mudding and taping and mudding and taping, three coats and then it will be ready for sanding. Ray hates sanding.
Here’s a couple pictures of the dry wall going into place in the new store. The first photo is of the left side of the store if you are standing at the front door. This is where the dog food section will be. The opening at the back is for the storage room.
The second picture was taken from the front right corner of the store. In this view you can see the register area that will be under the stairs that go up to the upper level.
