We are official on the outside now!
A view for parents from one of our comfy chairs!
What do 2 shopping carts + 1 lumber cart + 12 cases of ceiling tiles + 4 tables + 24 chairs equal? One tired family!
Roxul Fire & Soundproofing insulation up in the wall separating the bookstore from the meeting room. Already can tell the sound difference even without the door installed!
Another busy day building! Counter is framed and ready for paneling and finishing. There’s even going to be a peek-through opening for the bookstore dog. 😉
The wall separating the retail area and meeting room went up today. Within a week, the front half of the store will be a non-sawdust zone and the finishing touches can begin.
We’re so close now! Like Austy’s on Facebook for a chance to be at our Soft Opening. Invite only!
Do you see a kid’s reading nook? We do! It’s all in the imagination …
It’s hard to believe after months of work that paint is going on the walls. We’re loving this mustard-yellow choice, Sherwin Williams’ “anjou pear.”
Lots of my carpentry skills are being put to use. Bookshelves, flooring, walls and now an oak table in the works. Handywoman here!
