Step by Step. Paso a Paso.
Hola a todos!
Hope you are all doing splendidly! Since we last spoke, we got the keys to the building on May 2nd!!!!
Espero que todos esten esplendidos! Desde la ultima vez que hablamos, recibimos las llaves del edificio el 2do de mayo!
We have been working really hard on our floor plan trying to visualize the perfect placement for everything. Now that we are actually in the building, it is a little easier to feel the space and see how much actual room we have!
Hemos estado trabajando diligentemente en nuestro plano de planta tratando de visualizar la perfecta colocación de cada cosa. Ahora que estamos adentro del edificio es un poco mas fácil de tantear el espacio y ver que tanto espacio tenemos en realidad.
It is so exciting to experience the process of making this happen. We are forever grateful that you have helped make this happen! We are still on a tight budget but we will make it a reality! That being said, if any of you knows a certified plumber or electrician that would like to work with us on our tight budget, for trade and a fair price, please let us know. We want to be fair but we are also squeezing Cocoa Cinnamon into existence and we know it's going to be wonderful!
Es muy emocionante experimentar el proceso de realizar este proyecto. Estamos infinitamente agradecidos que tú nos has ayudo hacerlo posible. Seguimos con un presupuesto reducido pero vamos a realizarlo. Dicho esto, si conocen a un plomero o un electricista que quiera trabajar con nosotros por cambio de café o chocolate y a un precio justo, por favor dejen nos saber. Queremos ser justos a su trabajo pero al mismo tiempo estamos exprimiendo el local a existencia y sabemos que va a ser maravilloso!
Here is the wall that needs a plumber's tender love and care :).
Aquí esta la pared que necesita el amor y cariño de un plomero.
The blue tape is our visualization of the bar. We can't wait! We visited Al Frega to scope out possible materials for the bar and left with so many amazing ideas.
El tape azul es nuestra visualización del bar. No podemos esperar a que se haga realidad. Visitamos a nuestro amigo Al Frega para ver los diferentes materiales para el bar y nos fuimos con muchas ideas.
