A Small Setback

Well, we're missing our target opening date of June 15 because we had a snafu with the sign installation. Originally scheduled for May 15, it's been pushed back to mid-June because the permit to close down a lane of traffic didn't go through as expected. There's still a chance that we'll pull everything together at the last second for an opening this month.
Everything else is going well with the final installations in the building. The elevator's in place; as soon as we get electricity in the building, we'll be able to use it to move furniture onto the second floor. Most of the first floor furniture is inside the building. The partitions that go in between the manicure tables are in place. We're saving space in the back of the salon for two pedicure thrones (we originally thought we'd fit four in the first floor, but it would really be too tight, especially if a client wants a manicure and pedicure at the same time). We'll have portable tubs that can be pulled up to the manicure stations, as well as a third "VIP" pedicure station in a room upstairs. The waterwalls are installed, and our upstairs patio is full of thriving plants.
I started a "June 2008 Photo Gallery" to show off some of the latest construction photos.
