I could write a small novel on this project but…………. instead a few paragraphs.

A total gut, complete mayhem, filthy, disgusting place and have no idea how no one died from food poisoning. As I have seen so many times and in the words of General Powell to President Bush b4 they invaded Iraq “If you put your hand in the cookie jar, and break it…YOU own it”. Renos are sorta like that too

A few b4 shots

Bought trees, had them sawn in half lengthwise, strapped together, shipped, hollowed out, then wrapped them around existing steel posts. Reclaimed solid wood ceiling done in tongue and groove. Bought a few nice slabs of re-claimed old growth fir, for the table tops. The bars were re-configured, added a concete counter done with broken beer chards, polished. Old brick on two walls, ………….doesnt sound like much but it was a lot. Love the mirror above the stainless steel and wood bar/beer taps. Its a mirror but behind the mirror are 3 big screen TVs that you cant see unless you turn them on.

Kitchen was also a total gut cleaned, tiled………..and happy to say, the place is packed as the food is exceptional, the servers are friendly and cute, the ambiance is warm and cozy.

Beautiful work! Love the dividers made from cross cut sections of log. Looks like PacMan.
