Prepping to Start

Tenant Improvements will completely transform the store, and the preparation is happening now! Here is a list of what is underway and thanks for those who are helping:

  • Building Permit submittals are beginning thanks to Tekneek Architecture in Redmond – Larry and Eric have been great to work with.
  • Our landlord, David Rink, is serving as our General Contractor, providing the license we need and saving us substantially in our approach to the remodeling.
  • The biggest expense is the HVAC – but Randy Wallace has an past protégé who is virtually donating all the equipment and installation. Thanks to Don and Jimmy of Central Oregon Heating & Cooling.
  • Our next work party will be Saturday, May 4 and we hope to have a dozen folks working together emptying the front half, moving all fixtures, tearing out the floor and anything else we can do to prepare for the framing, plumbing and electrical work that will begin as soon as the Permit from the City is issued.
  • In the meanwhile we are accepting donations to purchase materials needed for the remodel; or in-kind donations. If you care to contribute to our efforts, learn more here or contact me at:
