    Does anyone have any other pictures besides this one and the couple of interiors from the Dispatch?

    I took some last week. They’ll go up soon with an interview Rebecca is working on.

    I picked-up a pizza using the new drive-thru window on Sunday evening. It’s very similar to the old one. It’s a little tough to get your car real close to the window, partly because there’s some construction fence along the approach, but overall it works just fine.

    I also had lunch inside the new space on Saturday afternoon. Mr. Krouse happened to be there, so I had a chance to chat with him briefly. The new interior is really nice. They will be expanding it once construction on the south part of the lot is complete.

    I am so impressed with how quickly and efficiently they made this project happen. And their construction staging and phasing is really a precedent to be followed. Yes, they had some flexibility with the site and scale of project, but there are a lot of projects that could take notes

    They were also very neighborly with the surrounding residents. They did not start work until around 7:30AM and never worked late into the evening. By and large they made very little noise beyond the beep-beep-beep of heavy equipment backing up.

    It took several adjustments to signage to let people know the drive through was still open.

    This morning the window of the old building are covered over and construction fence surrounds the old building. There are a bunch of guys walking around on the roof. So, demolition should start soon.

    Drive through is open on the new building.

    Just wanted to point out that construction on this one was handled by local firm Elford. They’ve got over 100 years of experience, so it sounds like their professionalism shows. ;)

    Demolition started this morning. The concrete for the former drive-through is going away as I type this… assume building will start going away later today.
