November Construction Update @hawksbillbrew
While I was away in Vegas a couple of weeks ago, the team finished up with the demolition of the glass block window on the northeast wall - the October 24 post showed that. We're waiting for that new window, but the team went to work on the southeast wall window afterwards.
This window is in the area where our brew kitchen will eventually be located, and the natural light from our new window will certainly help the environment and atmosphere back in that area. There is no worry from natural light - the beer will be in our shiny new tanks, protected from it.
The other major progress item was the delivery and installation of our cooler door. This item is recycled from a Safeway grocery store, although I'm not sure where it was located. We're working with an architectural/equipment recovery contractor in Harrisonburg for some of the specialty items like this one.
In any case, the installation of the door was a major step forward for us. The walls will be finished up soon, with solid insulation and a drywall finish on the side you see in the photo. We've got a board and batten pattern figured out for the wall behind the bar.
Not many days go by without some sort of progress in the building. I'll keep you posted as I get updates!
