Framing Complete And Lots of Other Stuff
Yet another milestone (there will be lots of those coming in the next few weeks)– the vestibule has been framed, the city inspected it a few hours ago, and dry wall is going in today.
The plumbers are currently installing the copper piping for my sink area, and this area will be drywalled at the same time as the vestibule.
Tomorrow insulation will be replaced for half of the warehouse. They’ll have to come out twice because the other side of the warehouse is packed with brewing equipment and bottles, so once the equipment is put into its final spot, I’ll move all of the bottles outside and they will finish the insulation for the rest of the space.
This Monday and perhaps Tuesday the Stonhard urethane (UT) flooring is going in. Once it is in, I’ll be able to start putting tanks where they belong and start connecting everything.
Another exciting event on Monday– Tyler begins working for The Bruery. He will be much needed in setting up the brewing equipment and getting miscellaneous tasks done before Christmas so we can get our first batch brewed on January 2nd. There’s a lot of things to do, and one minor omission could hold up the first batches by a few weeks, so Tyler will be of great help in getting things done. He appears to be excited about doing whatever it takes to get the doors open, so I know he will be a pleasure to work with.
Speaking of brewing our first batch on January 2nd, that leaves only 34 days to finish everything up. In reality, I only have 22 days to get everything done and pass inspections as after Dec. 21st, nothing will get done. The City is closed from Dec. 22nd until January 2nd, and I imagine the OC health department has a similar schedule. Did I say January 2nd we’d brew the first batch?
Wish me luck!
