Bar Build 006

Finally the post all of you have been wating for. YOu have waited weeks in anticipation, checking this blog daily for the elusive bar build update. You can not wait for work to continue so you can drive upstate for free beer. Today at 9am sharp the electrician came over. We ripped down sheetrock on the wall and on the ceiling. He installed a new switch for the high-hats, ran wire for the outlets.

New high hats, some ripped down the ceiling tho

Bar Build 005

Last night we were hammered with about 3″ of ice.  Lucky for us we sold the Jeep just in time. The plows went by around 5am,so I was not that late to work. It took me 30 minutes to get to Rt 17, about 5 miles down the road. Once I got to 17 and headed down the road a bit, the weather changed from ice and snow to just rain.  No wonder the guys at work think I am crazy when I can’t make it to work when it is really bad. I need an AWD vehicle.

Anyway….the electrician called and quoted me 300 for the whole enchalada. He is coming over January 17th to  kick off the Great Bar Build. Awesome.

I know dear reader you have been waiting tooth and nail for the next Bar Build Update post. Checking in on the humble blog day after day only to be met with disappointment and dejection at having to read about family type stuff or the pretty snow. Fear not! Operation Bar build has commenced once again! Starting out 2009 with a visit from my friendly neighborhood electrician, A.J. He came by Saturday evening and offered a few suggestions. Words like “high hats”, “extra outlets”, “ceiling come down”, “new switches”, “puck lighting”, “accent lighting” were thrown around. He will call me Tuesday the 6th with an estimate. Stay tuned.

The black box seen is a refridgerator with the door taken off, it will keep the keg cool. The area on the right will be boxed in and insulated. Next up is the electrician to run the lights and sockets.
