In February of 2009, I was hired to assist in the renovation of a storefront shell into a country-western saloon. I replaced 5 large windows on the building face, installed faux rafters and built a platform base for a church pew. Decoratively, I supervised the installation of molding, luan paneling, pine-boards, shims, and miscellaneous lumber to walls and ceilings to create a rustic barn-like feel for the front room, hallway and bathrooms.
Branded Saloon opened for business in late May of 2010.
