With the jack-hammers pounding in front of the soon-to-be Super 8, I can hardly wait for more businesses to come. Good luck Crooked Tail!

I love watching them dig in the mornings. Such a cathartic feeling.

ACK! The basement’s done and now onto to the first floor! I’ve heard rumors of 55 rooms, and while Holiday Inn in the background has more like 80 rooms, I still worry about the height.

Altho there’s no more digging, it’s nice watching actual people working.

Scaffolding goes up. Second floor starting soon…still no information on what business it’ll be.

Beautiful weather warrants formation of rooms AND first catcalls from construction workers. Cafe sign goes up across the street. They might make their own bread!

Back from vacation and not much has changed. I mean I guess the second floor is completed, right? In the meantime, check out the beautiful view I have now. Maybe I should quit bitchin’ and enjoy it whilest I can.

Pouring cement

So now we’re in the masonry stage…did I miss something? Shouldn’t the main structure of the building be complete before cosmetics are done??
