We are working our way systematically through the vineyard and fortunately, today was relatively warm for late February. The day ended with a gorgeous sunset:
|Tina and Jeff pruning away!|
|Ruger is helping too!|
During the last few weeks the wiring was finished and the ceilings were insulated and dry-walled. Then recessed lights and other light fixtures and fans were installed. And finally, the first pine boards were put up. With a little imagination, it is possible to envision the final look of the tasting room:
We finally started the interior remodel project of our barn – with lots of help from Michael D. Hansen Building & Remodeling. The goal is a small tasting room for the future winery, complete with bathroom, kitchenette and with access to the downstairs production area and upstairs storage room. The area we are remodeling is a third of the upper barn, which is divided into three bays. This section faces the pond and vineyard, where windows had already been installed last year, when the outside of the barn was redone with new boards and battons.
At the end of the first week, all the ceiling beams were set and the interior walls were studded in. It takes a bit of imagination to see where this is going…. But we are so excited!
