August 19

Almost done with the floor! Sanded down to get rid of spilled paint, etc, and then two coats of polyurethene. We were going to use wax, to get rid of the poly plasticity. Time and money did not permit. But I like it as is-bit shiny at the moment, but it will die down soon when it gets scuffed and beat up.

Augst 18

Our "special" friend the health inspector decided that the ceiling above our food prep area had to be cleanable. We pointed out that the ceiling was 20 feet up, and so would not be getting any kitchen dirt. But he was adamant-it had to be cleanable. So we built him a ceiling. Good excuse to use some more copper up!

Sign is officially up. Looks pretty great, can't imagine anything I would rather have. Very glad we didn't go for a huge blade sign on the side of the building!
