Things are finally wrapping up. Slowly, but better late than never, right?
We just wrapped up the dining room this afternoon. All painting and trim done, floor scrubbed, and tables and chairs put into place. I also ran some wood through the smoker today to test everything and man, now it smells awesome inside the restaurant. I wasn't thinking though and should have brought a few slabs of ribs to throw on while we were working. Oops.
Now I'm only waiting on a couple of things. The builder still has to install the exhaust fan to the roof, but apparently the curb had to be custom fabricated, so that's taking a tad longer. And then waiting for Coke to bring and install the fountain machine. Unfortunately, they said it might take two weeks.
So it looks like next week I'll start interviewing for employees and begin stocking the kitchen. Things will really begin to feel like it's coming together then.
Here's the virtually finished dining room:
