Dissection of a Photo

It'd be easy to confuse this blog for a construction blog and not a bakery blog at this point, but a remodel is necessary to create a bakery that is up to snuff (or code rather.) 

Here's a photo I took at our Progress Meeting yesterday, let's dissect it to see where we're at in the construction proces. . . .

1. Megan: That's Megan in the middle with the peach, ruffled shirt! She's pleased about our wood table (not pictured) and all the natural light.

2. Bakery case (to the right of Megan): That's our bakery case! It arrived with a dent, so now we are learning about insurance claims.

3. Trash Can (to the left of Megan): This trash can indicates that we are not yet open for business and work is still busily being done on our beloved little bakery.

4. Floor: The bamboo floor was finally installed! Now you'll be able to enter on a lovely, sustainable floor when you visit these two birds.

5. Barn Wood (on the wall): You've seen pictures of Jeff's awesome installation of Barbi's well aged barn wood before, but it's too beautiful not to highlight again.

6. Round Pendant Lamp: The lights are installed! These orb lamps provide an amazing amount of light to the bakery which will make for a most pleasant atmosphere.

7. Transom & Awning: Our new transom is being installed above our new commercial door, and you can see just a peek of our new burgundy colored awning.

8. Guy in the Red Shirt: He was a happy guy installing the transom. We like happy people!

Wow, a lot can be gleaned from a single photo. Thanks for visiting our blog; we can't wait for you to visit us at the bakery!

The Slow Reveal

After the drywall went up, we started to see some of the fun aesthetics that will adorn our new space.

Tiles went up in the sink area and in the bathroom...

 We fought hard for this unisex bathroom, which means that Trilety, Barbi, myself, and our architects sat in front of the Omaha Plumbing Board to state our case for having one restroom instead of two.

Subway tile! This is the mop sink and 3-basin sink area.

Our huge mother of a hood was installed...

Huge! This is required above our convection oven and range.

Trilety and I planted...

We picked roses, lilac, day lilies, lavender and a blueberry bush!

And the barn wood, which we've talked to admittedly about, was installed on the north wall.

Thank you Jeff Chase for the installation, thank you Barbi for the barn wood, and thank you Jil Bunnimit for the cool idea! 

Needless to say (I hope), we are excited! Construction will officially be done in a few more weeks and we should be ready to open in late July or early August. Wow, we can't wait to have you over!

We update the blog every couple weeks so check back on us soon!
