Raw space with multiple brick facades at varying stages of aging and plywood blocking for wood panels. Liz takes a dust free breather.

Pre-treated brick - it's a mess!

It was insane how many different types of brick/stone there were in one space - 7 in total! The history and architecture revealed itself one layer at a time. A true challenge to merge the varieties in tone and aged appearance using mortar, paint and other tricks of the trade.

While Liz and I were up high painting the brick, Jenny was hard at work mixing just the right shades of grey for us to keep the progress moving through the night.

Sal refers to my printed template to ensure correct placement of each plank. He rocked AND he let me use his pneumatic nail gun to secure the final structure! Hot damn it was powerful!
