Construction buried the hunt..

Another week tramples by and we get closer to ending the long saga of construction that we’ve been dealing with sporadically over the last ten months. Today marks the most crazy it has ever been. There were guys in every corner of this place doing work. The biggest thing is that we’re basically removing the second floor in order to rebuild it about 4X the strength. On the east side we will do all of our milling and grain storage. Each pallet of grain weighs 2500lbs, so storing multiple pallets in one area above our heads could be dangerous without the proper reinforcement. The other side will serve as general storage. The retail area got a big sep further today when the new concrete was poured. We made a bunch of plumbing changes and upgraded the handicap accessibility. We also applied an acid to all the construction adhesive that was left over from the old signage and power washed the exterior. It looks a lot better without that gunk mucking up the joint. With all that said, I couldn’t get away to hide the capsule.
The hunt will return, fear not.
