09-12-2019 02:36 AM by Steve | 5 comments »

Over the summer one of my instrument building customers told me he bought a restaurant. It seemed out of the blue but I wished him well. Then I realized that he was not telling me this coincidentally. Rather, he wanted the restaurant’s interior to pay homage to the exotic instrument woods he uses to build guitars. I invited him out to the warehouse to take a walk and see if something inspires him. Unfortunately, there were some limitations. Not the least of which w...

This new building will be a 24 by 24 two story workshop, with a 14 by 24 single garage attached to it. It will be fully insulated in the first floor of the work shop, windows and 3 garage doors, 2 on the work ...
