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. :)
