walls up

The walls are almost complete and then a roof! The weather has been raining side ways and lots of wind so putting up siding has been a challenge to say the least. We are hoping that the work on the inside will begin next week which will keep the workers out of the elements and hopefully working much faster! We are starting to pick out flooring, lighting, etc. and nervous and excited all at the same time.

Walls going up

Our insulation was delivered an extra window, or two, or five,(!)added and the siding began to go up today!!! It is really starting to look like a building and feels really BIG. El went to an eco building supply in Portland last week and we are looking at recycled flooring w/ hemp backing that doesn't put off any gasses, etc. Our second floor plans have changed many times over but we will have a large bathroom with shower and laundry facilities for cycle tourist, a custom "fit" area, a large office/apartment and space for our triathlon and camping gear. We are starting to make our larger orders to fill up the new store and just placed a huge order for womens workout & yoga clothing. Thanks for all your interest and support.

Riding inside!

We returned from our trip to California where we caught a couple days of the "Tour of California" and where Elliott attended a "Fit" Seminar. The building now has a floor, plumbing for the downstairs bathroom, windows & doors are onsight and scheduled to be put in by weeks end. We are awaiting delivery of our insulation to begin putting the roof and siding on. We had an alternative energy consult to help reduce the buildings carbon footprint. We spent several hours with the consultant and came up with some great ideas that we are hoping to put into action to tread lighter on the earth!
