You never know what you'll find in restoration...an old sign used as roof decking
Preparing for plumbing
Framing in the studio
Creating a doorway between Sweet Earth & Mingle
Time to build a new storefront
Building the new front
Beautiful trimwork for the new storefront!
The interior of Sweet Earth nearing completion
Fixing the crumbling rear wall in Mingle
Creating a new facade
New joists, roof...what do you know? It's a building! And look at those cool walls now that the plaster has been chipped off!
Installing the storefront in Mingle - the doors are from an 1820's buidling in Boston
A nearly new front for Mingle
Old table from a commercial building in Ada, OK, covered in what felt like 100 layers of wrapping paper!
The same table, refinished with antique replacement legs
Completely finished, Mingle's interior.
