The metal accoustical ceiling in the main entrance is coming along nicely. The ceiling blends well with the tongue and groove wood ceiling throughout other areas in the building.
In the background, the workers are installing a corrugated steel siding on the walls. This looks like the same type of steel siding that was used on barns back in the 60's & 70's. In the foreground Jerry works on his camera. He's always trying to one up me with his photography skills.
Looking up at the second level, you can see the workers are installing the wood finish on the exterior of the restrooms.
All of the exterior glass is installed with the exception of the radius pieces on the silo (which you can see straight ahead). The polished concrete floor will be one of many attractions in the building. Even though it's quite dusty in the photo, it still has a shine.
Here's a better shot of the ceiling from a bird's eye view.
This is the women's upstairs rest room. There's more toilets in this restroom than we have in the entire current office. I'm not sure why Nick's raising his hand, he's the one giving the tour.
The wood siding on the outside of the restrooms is actually tongue and groove flooring.
The commerical kitchen is filled with stainless steel appliances and tables. The delivery and installation of these products is a good indication of how close the completion date really is.
Break Room or Lunch Room. Whatever you want to call it, it's much larger than the existing one, which has room for about 6 people.
As the move in date draws near, there is a mix of emotions at the office. Some people are excited, some are curious as to how the new office will change day to day activity, and understandably so, some may be a little sad as another chapter of the AgroLiquid legacy comes to a close. Personally, I think it's pretty darn cool because it's a perfect representation of what the company has become - a small town success story that has benefited many. The new building will serve as a great work place as well as a destination for visitors to learn about our company and the history of agriculture.
