The stone work is finally done as the front columns are now complete! The entry way has taken shape and we finished off the remaining siding & got that painted.. One door has been stained (as we are nearing winter, days warm enough to stain & paint are a premium!). The other door will get replaced as the company installing them damaged it. The positive is that we can stain that one inside before they hang it. You can also note the new sidewalks left and right of the vestibule.
We are now trying to finish up some odds and ends outside in the remaining nice days we have. Forecast for Thanksgiving is 60 degrees so we will plan our Turkey day events accordingly!
Well it has been quite a while since my last update. Going hard at it every night until 11p has made it difficult to find the time or the energy to update the ol' blog, but here, finally are some new shots:
The front siding is now up and painted!
The stone work is also coming along:
The deck is now complete:
The back siding is also complete and the painting has begun
Grass is growing north of the building:
Inside painting of the main tasting room is complete (hopefully pictures coming soon). Just the bathrooms and office area to paint!
With the countdown to harvest 2011 less than 4 weeks (thankfully it looks like this years harvest is delayed a week to 10 days due to a cool early summer), we are feverishly working to get the basement processing facility ready. The drywall is up and mudded and the painting has begun. The best part maybe that the AC is up & running!
The tall kickout:
Gluing up FRP board (wash board) for the walls where the bottling line will go:
While we are painting the earth movers were moving a lot of dirt:
And we found time to get a retaining wall in by the soon to be poured crush pad:
Day 3 of the Drywall saw the work on the main floor completed as well as the stairwell. Quite a different look at the stairs. The crew moved to the processing facility in the basement and got quite a bit done in the basement. Things are moving along.
Here is the main level - It was getting dark when I shot the photos.
The basement ceiling/soffit work begins.
This is Richard's wine lab.
Here are some vineyard shots with the beautiful full moon.
