Another privileged week of work on a project I still can't get enough of. No matter the obstacles, I just feel like the luckiest guy in the world being at the helm of this project.
So, what's been happening this week? Well, we're set up for an electrical inspection tomorrow morning. And with that accomplished we'll be able to finish the build out of our interior walls. The masonry will start for the wood grill. The front of both the bar and chef's counter will get going. Speaking of which I visited a two local wood suppliers this week, one a Georgetown mill hewing beautiful boards from our local trees, and the second a fantastic reclaimed wood specialist who's curating an awesome collection of woods. So much history. We should be picking out all of our lumber this week and getting it over to the restaurant to acclimate a bit before it becomes our table tops and bar front. Take a look at some of this:
It's fantastic. I can't wait to work with it.
What's not so fantastic is my ventilation hood and ansul system. Apparently the two best guys in town are too busy right now to take on our job. If you know of someone in this trade, let me know. As fast as the front of house is moving along, we can't get much farther on the kitchen with out the hoods getting in soon.
More to come next week, cheers...
