This week’s preview is a little different. Demolition is nearly done. All those pesky walls blocking the view have been removed. This combined with some updates to the 3d model made me think it was a good time to touch on layout again. With pictures!
Here’s a quick side-by-side comparison of actual photos with views of the model. There’s an overview shot after the jump.
First off, we got accurate measurements and made some small adjustments. There’s a mop sink by the counter, originally to meet health code, and now conveniently accessible for cleaning brushes and the like. We flipped the folding tables and kid’s area to move the kids away from said sink. There’s also room for lockers against the closet wall (bottom right), which we hope to build and rent to ease encumbrance penalties for burdened patrons.
There’s other smaller details. The tables are slightly rearranged, as is the lounge and drink machine, and there’s a drinking fountain added in. We’re planning for the fountain’s water to be filtered and chilled. I also sprinkled in some fake merchandise to give a better sense of scale. See our last preview for inventory details.
Not shown in the model are light fixtures, ceiling fans, or air conditioning units. You might spy the two large-ish units in the photos, suspended in mid-air by telekinesis metal struts. Don’t worry about noise though; the compressors are on the roof. We had to check for a breeze a couple times during the Work Day to know they were even on. Plus, they’re over-sized for the space, so they’ll keep it comfy even on crowded days.
That’s it for now. Our demolition is a few days ahead of schedule, and our electrician should start up next week. We’ll sneak in plumbing, A/C and network cables around him, then put the insulation and walls up. After that, Work Day #2! Stay tuned.
