Now that the weather has been getting better, we’ve been able to move some things along that had been on hold over the winter. Tallman’s Tree Service was brought in to remove a few more trees around the front of the property to allow us to widen the driveway and increase the sight lines.
Some nice warm days have allowed the exterior of the building to receive the second coat of paint that was needed. And at the end of April the tar pits opened up, which allowed Gifford’s Paving to come in and lay the asphalt down for the driveway and alongside the buildings. Now things are really starting to look good on the outside of the building.
On the inside there is still more finishing work to be done, but quite a bit of progress has been made in the last six weeks. The interior is fully painted, the finish electric has been done, the plumbing is in, the floors are down (thanks Crazy Tom’s) and Ray has been working on the cherry bead board that dresses the checkout counter.
Still on the to do list:
A railing along the side of the building for handicap access.
Sealing the floors
Trimming out doors and windows
Baseboard tiling in the front half of the store
And about a dozen other things, but we’re getting there. No move date has been selected yet, but we’re hoping to be able to relocated the store sometime in June. Stay tuned for specifics.
