This is what the final product will look like. The vacant lot will eventually become home to a garage, greenspace and outdoor seating for the storefront. The structure we just tore down (yes, the rest of it came down today!) will be rebuilt to one-story high with a deck on top of it. We have a long way to go...

Thanks so much for all of your help today! Together, we were able to fill 5 palettes of bricks and salvage all of the old wooden beams! The bricks will be used to re-face the new structures so that they remain historic in appearance.
Bringing the middle section of the property down to only one floor is especially exciting since the property is starting to look like what it will one day become. The final plans include a one-story tall structure connecting the front & back building. On top of this one-story structure will be a deck, which - from the inside - will connect to the kitchen.
