At long last, I finished the ceiling row at the ridge of the old roof in the beer hall. Yes, that's right, it's only one row, but it required a lot of notching out, and a lot of cuss words ... ;-)
We had Lou (our engineer) stop by today. As a restaurant we have certain requirements from the Department of Health with respect to our septic system, and Lou is going to help us with that. Of course it works to our advantage that he knows the people at the Department of Health, and he speaks the technical language necessary to describe things.
We have been very lucky with the people we work with in the sense that they actually work with us, and not just come here to make money.
