I've finally started working on my steel panel plasma cut fence, "Save Our Home". It is located between our gallery and our wonderful neighbors the Hurless Brothers Foreign Car Service shop. I loved making paper dolls when I was a child and the image of continuous hearts created by them holding hands always fascinated me. I used this symbolism to relay the importance of saving our Mother Earth for our children. Each cut out child encompasses a different part of our world that we hold dear to our hearts and our longevity. I have 4 more panels left to do. Stop by, say hi and check them out while you PARK FOR FREE in our back parking lot.
The drywall is now installed inside and the kitchen area is coming together. Be on the lookout for our custom tile backsplash coming soon! Outside, concrete has been poured on the patio and some of the original stones are being repurposed for the border. Keeping parts of this historic building in place have been a foundation for this renovation.
We are loving the new doors and windows in our gallery, which were installed last week! We think it gives the glass block and brick a new, modern, and exciting look! We love how they look from inside, too! The boarded up section on the right will be a large glass window! The Welding Shop Door & Windows.
Framing has started to go up at 1322 W Main Street! We are finally able to wrap our minds around how the studio and gallery will look upon completion. The basement dig- out has also begun! First, a ramp was created in our parking lot. Then, an opening was made in the wall of the basement, and a support beam inserted to hold up the rest of the wall. Now all sorts of machines are able to drive in to our basement, break the concrete floor, and remove it so that the height of our basement is up to code.
The awning for Delia's welding shop door was installed last week! We think it mixes modern with the old charm of our building perfectly!
