Coffee Shop Update # 2

I've been asked to give an update on coffee

shop so here it is. It is really coming along!!

We painted the outside (remember the pink and

teal colors it was) put in pavers, put in a door

that gives us access to our outside seating

area, got our amazing sign up

and this past weekend, we braved the

upstairs which has been closed off for 10 years!
We're going to turn it into an office/apartment space.

Dust masks were actually necessary....I think

I developed a case of black lung!

My face really says it was absolutely

disgusting!! They covered the hard wood with

nasty carpet and vinyl and there was so much

dirt and grime everywhere Here's the old nasty carpet

Why would you cover these up?!!

Here are the floors that will look amazing
when we have them sanded and finished this week
Already so much better!!

My dad cutting a hole in the side
of the shop for a door

And the after can kind of
see the pavers in this one

Our dump pile...these were the kind of fixtures
that were up before....early 90s high quality stuff!

Much better!

We have these table/chair sets that fit perfectly with

the venetian plaster

We got our sign!! It's got an actual street light inset

So, all this to say we're getting really close.

For those of you who are interested, we'll be throwing

a HUGE grand opening party with live music and the

works. Come to Redmondand check it out!!
