Much has happened around here since the last update. We had counters and a work table constructed on the mezzanine. Additionally, the floor was burnished and, with that done, moving in quickly became the focus. The lift arrived during the floor burnishing process and we installed it as soon as the floor crew was done. Currently, the electrical work is being performed. We’ve got the majority of the shop level outlets done and the lift wired up.
We took advantage of the lift immediately. Several outstanding issues were quickly resolved on the shop truck and personal vehicles. We’re excited about getting rolling on customer projects!
The shop passed its final inspection and construction began on the interior. Here the mezzanine’s steel subfloor and plywood are being installed.
The concrete is poured and cured. The final grade finished and the blacktop paved. We are finally ready for our final inspection.
Progress is slower than I would have hoped. This has been exacerbated by the holidays. The concrete forms and rebar for the drive and pathway to the shop have been constructed. The massive concrete pad outside the shop entrance will be very nice and extremely useful. Hopefully concrete will be pouring soon.
The crew is very close to completing the building construction. Here are the latest photos.
The Specialist is fascinated with vintage automotive technology and the preservation of analog automobiles. This can be anything from a well preserved bone stock car to a highly modified one that maintains a look and feel of its era. We thrive on the unusual and prefer the road less traveled when it comes to a performance approach. With roots in historic road racing and Pebble Beach Concours level restoration, we specialize in vintage automobile tuning, performance builds, preservation and restoration.
We are actively seeking your unusual motorcar to care for.
Our new shop construction project is underway. The building itself should be completed this week. Last week the steel frame was erected and the western and eastern walls went up. We’re growing more and more excited about moving in!
