Exciting news! I officially took over rental of the old mechanic garage TODAY! I met with the co-op board and they agreed to the renovations that need to get the building from garage to retail space. I also lucked out and have a very good chance at grant money for commercial rehab projects. I met with the guy today and it sounds like a done deal. I have to get estimates and have all the work done by the end of the year. That’s right, 2 months. I have a feeling that Nate will be doing the work himself as the carpenters around here are booked until spring.
Just a quick note to update you all. Now, I have to figure out some math and estimate building materials.
