As I mentioned in an earlier post, there's a lot to do - more than what I had initially thought. It's not anything too overwhelming, but there is a lot to be done. In fact, I just met today with an interior designer about color scheme and such. Floor plan, colors, decor, equipment, menu...the list goes on and on and on. Right now, the most pressing item is finalizing the floor plans and getting them to the city for approval.
Now, it would seem that finalizing plans wouldn't be too big of a problem...only it's more than 'just' a floor plan. If that's all it was, I'd have had that turned into the city for approval and we'd have started building already. However, since my square footage is over 3,000 SF, I have to have the floor plans done up by an architect along with mechanical plans, plumbing, electrical, and hoods. I'm hoping that we'll get that completed sometime this week and turned into the city.
As for the space? - that's all it is at the moment - just empty space.
I'm hoping that we'll start filling this space as soon as possible - I'll take pictures along the way so you can see the progression.
Anyway, it's taking a bit to get all the plans ready to submit to the city, but as I've always told my kids..."patience is a virtue".
