Winter showed up

We knew it couldn't last, right? Winter finally arrived in February bringing biting cold, snow & ice and slowing activity on the site a bit. Still, progress has been made. The retaining wall below the restaurant is well underway, the drainage system is coming along and, most exciting - the wood trusses for the main stack room arrived!

A slight improvement in working conditions allowed the trusses to be put up quickly as well as much of the metal stud installation. Now it really begins to look like an actual building!
In the meantime the Building Committee and Architects have been busy with selecting colors, finishes, carpeting and lighting fixtures for the interior.
