Taking a vacant beat up old structure, and converting it into a contemporary space that our patrons enjoy and complement was not an easy task. We desired saving the unique and interesting aspects of the space, yet create a high functioning modern kitchen and client centered bar. Steve and his crew worked hard to make the details all blend in and we also felt like they looked after our pocketbook. We certainly had some hurdles to jump on this project, and the people we dealt with from CopperRock all help us navigate this project wisely, and they are always welcome to your new place!
