One Step Closer - Restoration Update

One Step Closer - Restoration Update

Hello friends, 

We have a great update.  As many of you know we had to tear about 30 ft.  of the exterior south side wall down because it was crumbling. I'm happy to share that we made progress. Most of the wall is built back!  

The picture shows the before & the now.  The top picture is what we started with (the tear down process) & the bottom picture is where we are now.  A huge difference, a step in the right direction!

You're probably wondering where the windows & the bricks are. We are going to put the windows back where they were & don't worry, we will be re-bricking the outside to look just as it did before using the same bricks.  We have to wait to re-brick until the weather permits.

We are still unsure of a completion date. We still have quite a ways to go but nevertheless, we are one step closer.

We will update again soon.

Sincerely,

Brittany

Progress

Progress

Hello friends,

Progress is being made on the original Deer Creek Mercantile building.

We are rebuilding a portion of the exterior wall from the basement to the 2nd story.  We are happy to say that the basement portion of the wall is complete!  We just have to build the main floor & second story wall now.

It may not look like much progress but rest assured, it is!  

We are almost to the point where we can start working on the porch, windows, & interior. 

To quote Jerry Reed (Smokey & The Bandit) "We have a long way to go & a short time to get there.."

We are going to get as much accomplished as we can get & we hope to have restoration complete by the end of March.

Wishing you a safe & Happy New Year,

Brittany

Great things take time.

Great things take time.

Hello friends,

Time flies & we did not make our goal to be open in the original store by Christmas. That's okay though. The restoration job is a lot of work!  Rebuilding the exterior wall is what we have been working on & it is a major undertaking. 

Great things take time & that is so true. Once we get finished with restoration, it will be so worth it in the end.  

Our goal is to be open now in March or April but we still have a long road ahead of us. Here's hoping we can reach that goal. We are certainly going to try our best.

We will keep posting updates as time goes by. Until then, we are still located in our small store across the street.

Until next time,

Brittany

UNCOVERING HISTORY:

As many of you already know we are restoring the original home to Deer Creek Mercantile.  This store was built in 1905 & it's over 5,000 square feet. We are so excited to be restoring it. We still have a long way to go but everyday more progress being made!

A little bit of paint goes a long way... 

Looking better already!

Uncovered the old side - sidewalk! WOW, beautiful.
