Today our contractor, Mat Elmhorst, began working on the bakery space. We had received glowing reviews of his rate and quality of work, but we were still taken a bit by surprise. I think our idea of pace is a little skewed since we did all the work on the upstairs space, during which A LOT of learning took place. It is great to see just how fast these renovations are going to go by!
Here is a picture from April 21st, after we removed a lot of the built-up debris, but before Mat started any work:
And here is a shot of the space after just six hours of work:
Already, the utility closet is re-framed, the new bathroom is framed in, and the half wall creating a path to the bathroom is framed as well. I wonder what tomorrow will bring!
