First, our apologies on being a little M.I.A. With the holidays, the growing number of inquiries and well, all the comings and goings out at the barn, we got a little sidetracked on our posts. But never fear. We’re back in action and ready to bring you up to speed! (Thank you so much for your patience during our downtime!)
Let’s get started, shall we.
As you might remember, we were highly anticipating the start of a key task in our renovation project – roof removal. Well friends, it is officially underway! Our construction team is ever so carefully removing the current roof, section by section to add insulation and additional support as well as a brand new roof in the coming weeks.
As you can imagine the roof removal is creating some incredible views in the Loft. We are delighted to share with you one exciting feature that will help enhance the natural lighting in the space once the roof is back in place. We are adding big, beautiful glass window panes on both the northern and southern ends of the Loft.
For those of you who have toured, we know you can appreciate the view with all of this natural light!
Downstairs, the progress continues as well. We are happy to report that the meeting rooms, bridal suite, catering kitchen and restrooms are all starting to take shape with framework throughout. This is especially neat for us as we can now walk in and really “feel” the space within the framework. It’s just incredible.
Outside and over to the silos, our future freight elevator and emergency staircase are starting to take shape as well. We’re really enjoying watching the silos be repurposed in this way.
Hopefully you now feel back in the know on the latest at the beautiful old barn. No matter the rain or the snow, we’re still on the move eagerly working towards our big unveil in June.
