If These Walls Could Talk

As you can see from the pictures below--WE HAVE WALLS! The construction is moving so fast and the guys are going a great job!

This is the view from the front door looking in. The dropped cieling will be over the service area.

This is the hallway and the two doorways on the right are our bathrooms!

This is one of our super cute little bathrooms!

This will eventually be our fireplace!

Here, they are starting to tear out the wall to put in a new window!

Shout Out!

Introducing....Our LOGO.....

I have to give a major shout out to my dear friend Chris Soash for designing our logo! Chris and I have been friends since high school and it was in our many mutual art classes that I first discovered how talented Chris is. Since, Chris has graduated from the University of Minnesota, Duluth with a degree in Graphic Design. When it came to designing a logo, Chris, was my first thought. He actually hand drew the font above! He did this amazing logo along with a fun graphic, which you'll have to wait to see! 

Stophie, thanks for your hard work! I can't wait to see your design big, bright and hanging above our store!

Coming Along

I stopped by Coffee Buzz on Friday and they are really coming along. The wall framing is completed as well as the dropped ceiling above where the service area will be. The fireplace is also framed, which isn't shown in the picture. As you can see, they are also starting to insulate the walls!

Day 1

Construction started yesterday and I am in shock in how much they have already accomplished. As you can see from the pictures below they already have the frames for the walls. As for the rest of this week, the plumber is supposed to come and get going on the bathrooms. I'll be stopping by again on Friday, so be looking for more pictures!

This is the view from the front door. The doorway on the right will be into our back room. The doorway further back and to the left will be the hallway to the bathrooms!

This is the view from the dry cleaners. The doorway directly in front leads to the bathroom.

Baby's First Pictures!

A few weeks back, we went and saw the inside of the future Coffee Buzz! Consider these the "Before" pictures!

This is our store front! If you look closely you can see a little puggle at the front door! :o)

This is a view from the inside looking out to the street. Eventually, this will be a view from behind our counter.

A view from the opposite side, the fireplace will be in the left corner--next to the window.

This is the view from the front door. Soon, you'll be able to see our counter, the hallway with the bathrooms and the attached dry cleaner.
