It’s a bit of a mess

Demolition is always messy, hauling away truckloads of debris, but making room for the construction phase.

A new door!

The outside wall was removed to make way for the new vehicle door. This will provide access to our parking area in the yard and the drive-thru key pick-up and drop-off area. Now you won’t have to find a parking spot!

Moving walls and more

The  two outside walls have been knocked down and will be moved 4 feet out into the yard. They have dug a trench to pour new concrete posts to support the new walls.
