For the past two weeks, we have walked into the building each day to hear the sounds of hammers hitting drywall, ceiling pieces falling from above, and the scraping of shovels as they collect the dusty portions of broken wall. Those sounds mean that we have finally begun renovations on the building!
Our building, once home to dentists' offices and even a pharmacy is taking shape as our new co-working space. In the two weeks that our contractors have been here working, we have seen so much progress already.
All of the interior walls in the middle of the building are gone and all the tiles have been removed from the floor. Most of the drywall has been pulled from the ceiling and the long hallway that went from one end of the building to the other is opening up to reveal our common area work space.
All of the careful planning and ideas we have been working on for months are finally coming to life. The sounds that are echoing through the building are music to our ears and only seem elevate our excitement to see the final product.
The exterior of the building has been revamped as well! We had the building cleaned and painted to give it a much-needed facelift. Our once brown and monochromatic building is now light gray with darker accents on the front.
In addition to the work that our contractors and painters are doing, we have been working to get the other offices in tip-top shape. We have done some tearing down and painting ourselves over the past few weeks. We have also built many different furniture pieces for the offices that are remaining on the bottom floor of the building.
Things are changing here everyday and we will keep updating you all on the progress! Make sure to follow us on Instagram, Facebook, and LinkedIn for updates and if you would like, you can schedule a tour of the building on our website: www.studio220theshoals.com.
