Something comes up that isn't well, well. It seems that our plans have been "disapproved". This just means the architect has to redraw a few minor things, but we won't get approval until later this week. In other news, we showed our prospective carpenter the space on Saturday--it seems like he'll be able to work on it, building our bar and some of our furniture. Brick and wood panelling look like the order of the day for our walls.
We're also investigating HVAC options, since that seems to be a major cost in our projected estimate. Ideas?
