I hate to generalize, but again, there are distinct divisions between the personalities of the numerous trades working on this project. The plumbers: gregarious fellows. they’re in and out multiple times throughout the process, take pride in their work, and are happy to chat it up. Painters: serious but engaging. Electricians: cautious but friendly; it’s […]
This is a jackhammer. It’s a tool that’s normally used for demolition rather than construction. It turns out, however, that when our friends poured concrete into the holes that the trench drains were set into, the concrete didn’t behave as it should. Rather than give the drains a cozy spot to settle into, it floated […]
It only took these guys three hours to get this sign in place. Here they are putting the “t” up. The sign, as you can see, is large. I said it before, and I’ll say it again: after nine years of people saying, “where are you, exactly?” I feel confident that you’ll be able to […]

get ready to dine al fresco- the patio’s been poured Lots of concrete in the works today at new Feast. The patio’s been poured and the furniture’s being shipped on Friday. Before you know it, you’ll be able to soak up the sun as you soak up a Bohemian Bicycle.
Hey, I figured out what this hole was for. Guess what holds it up.
