Before: This is the front room of the store looking from the front door in
Before: This is the store from the back of the front room looking out onto Oak street.
Stopping for dinner. Thanks mom for the great food!
During: The first cut into the wall.
After: This is the front room of the store looking from the front door in - but with the wall gone! Now you can see back into the future Soirée space.
After: It got pretty dusty in there so I wasn't able to take as many good shots of the front but you can see how the overhang (one of the "weird" walls that we can't explain) is going to be removed making it one big open space.
Thank you to our manual labor or "stud finders" as they like to call themselves - John, Joel and Ryan. You guys are amazing and we really, really appreciate all that you guys are doing (this was at about 11pm last night)!
Day two starts in about 45 minutes and we'll be sure to share more pictures of the progress. Feel free to stop by and visit - 6205 Oak Street - but don't come without a sledge hammer.
