Updates from the barn:
The new accessible ramp is under construction. This ramp, along with the ramp that was previously used for truck loading will connect the main space to the exterior / sidewalk. The front bar of the building connected by these ramps will serve as the lounge and library, which also tie into the exterior / streetscape.
The steel truss reinforcements are complete. These were engineered to reinforce and strengthen the existing trusses. The reinforcement will be painted black and remain exposed; it was arranged in a manner so as to preserve much of the original metalwork.
The design is still developing while the work is in progress, more updates on that later…
