From the kitchen looking toward the Grand River windows.
Looking accross what will eventually be the bar.
The existing floors in both the Parks and Rec Diner and the Republic Tavern had to be trenched in order to run all the new mechanical through the restaurants. The cuts were made months ago and we’ve been stepping over them ever since while the plumbing, electrical and bar lines were set in place.
Where the Diner counter will be.
This week, we’ve been able to stop jumping about as we finally are at a place where they can be filled in and the floor made whole again. The teams worked the final prep in the am – and the cement truck arrived just after lunch. Then the pouring began.
Wet concrete vs. terrazzo.
Concrete is not generally exciting on it’s own, but as it brings us one step closer, we think it is kinda cool. In fact as the walls can now begin to go up in place, we think concrete is actually very cool.
All dry the next day.
