There are a few things Im sure you may want to know so I will fill in where I can.
The project is in Naperville IL.... Here is a Mapquest OverView
A close cross section is 127th and Rt. 59
Most hotels are under 70 a night.
We have begun the demo of the area...I will post pictures as I get them. I will try to give you dates and times of when I will be there so you can see the most for the time you are here. Local Subscribers can drive up any time they wish.
First Off is the build out. You will not be there for that. Another group is doing that. What we want is sculpting only and staining and painting. You know the "fun" stuff.
There is a really big buzz as to what we are doing so it should be exciting.
I have a meeting Saturday with owners...I will up date you with the details.
Construction is well under way
12515 Rhea Drive
Plainfield IL. 60585
I should be out there the week of April 26th either laying down the scratch coat, finishing metal lath, or both. The following week I want to be carving.
There may be a small wood ceiling installed as well.
For more details call me 630.712.3327
This week (27th through 30th) is wrapping up loose ends and beginning to scratch coat. Next week finish the scratch coat and start carving. I hope to be finished carving and on to the staining in the next 2.5 weeks.
This will be a lot of fun as we have many intricate elements in this wine cellar.
Friday April 30th the electrician should be completed
Saturday the carpenters should finish
Monday Finish Lathing and Begin Scratch Coat
Tuesday through Friday Carving & Scratch Coat.
By the end of next week we should be really close to being finished...
There are some loose ends that will hold us up in a few areas but the bulk of the project should be finished and ready for painting the following week.
