We are getting deliveries continuously from different stores across the country. There has been so many deliveries that we keep seeing the same UPS delivery person and I'd like to announce that we have become fast friends because every time he comes, he waves his hands through the glass door to get my attention knowing that I am Deaf. :)
Ron Trumble built beautiful and sturdy black wooden shelves. I cannot wait for the glassware to arrive next week so we can start filling the shelves with glasses and bottles of California and Italian wines.
We replaced the Beer dispenser single tower pair with 5-product towers. The guy installed five beer brand tap handles. Beautiful! Wow, what a great feeling to see tap handles and knowing that means we are getting real close to the Big Day!
As soon as we recoat the hardwood flooring with sealer, we will be able to set up tables and chairs, and then someone from ABC can come to check this place. We should have our wine and beer license very soon. We have finalized the Beer and Wine menu. Yay!
More next time. Stay tuned!
We were able to get some rest over the weekend and went shopping for equipment to go in the bar area at Mozzeria. We are going to make some significant progress this week.
You saw photo of the entrance ramp in our last blog posting. We poured concrete and leveled it to meet the American with Disabilities Act (ADA) requirement. We had to wait until the concrete was completely dry before asking Michael E. Sharnov and Samuel Reynolds to return to Mozzeria.
Michael and Samuel continued to complete installation of wood flooring on the ramp. Michael said it wasn’t easy to install wood strips on the ramp. It was a good thing Douglas Fir is a softwood as it allowed them to bend each wood strip slightly and apply glue to make sure it adheres to concrete. After a couple of hours later, ta-da! What beautiful-looking wood.
We have our fingers crossed as the building inspector is coming in for the final inspection. We hope the ramp will meet his satisfaction. Please cross your fingers for us too!
Nathan Dingel and Russ Stein have started to build supports for the bar countertop. We just ordered marble slabs and expect them to arrive shortly. I cannot wait to see how the marble slabs look on the counter and against the pizza oven!
Ron Trumble brought over custom-made wood doors from his workplace. The doors are really beautiful. We are proud of Ron's workmanship. Russ had the door frames painted in black to match the exterior facade look.
Ron also brought tabletops that he made for Mozzeria. We love how it looks and we know the red chairs we ordered a while ago will look great with it.
We will share the latest on the chimney situation on Thursday. Tell your friends to sign up and follow our progress at Mozzeria. :)
While we were brainstorming ideas for the interior look at Mozzeria with Patty Foo Hampton, our interior designer, we wanted to create a custom look. We have been impressed with Ron Trumble's wood making skills.
Ron Trumble has been in the wood making business for 30 years, and runs his own shop in Oakland. One of his previous clients, Candy Store is located in the Russian Hill neighborhood, San Francisco. I would like to show you what he is capable of making. Above is a picture of custom made shelves that he created for Candy Store. Ron is known for making amazing wood furniture and cabinets.
We hired Ron to make table tops, an U-shaped banquette, a countertop by the window, and shelves for the bar. I also want to mention how truly beautiful when Patty, Ron, Russ and I met in person to discuss details for these wood projects, we all were able to communicate in American Sign Language (ASL). There was no third party to assist us in relaying information.
We cannot wait to see these completed products. We look forward to seeing our vision becoming alive soon.
