An Odd Structure, Part 2



In response to blogging about The Wall last week, at least one person requested updates, so here is one. Work has begun on the store/office on the left side (above). You can now see a bit of bracing against the wall until the roof is in place, I suspect. In fact, both sides are now braced (see next two photos).





The smarter-than-me Cuppa studied the sign (below) while I was taking this picture (above) and noticed that the shape of the projected roof matches the wall very well — which is a darn good thing, I rather think. It also shows that there will be a series of shops/offices (I suspect mostly the latter). In looking at the pads and the electrical hookups, it appears that there will be about ten places of business in all and that this will be the only firewall. So, perhaps one of the establishments next to the wall requires extra protection because it involves greater risk? Bakery? Restaurant?

It certainly will look better than the average suburban strip mall when it is done.

I often enjoy the excitement of wondering at a new establishment and the speculation on what it will become.

Probably...but it will be a nice looking building when finished!hughugs

which just goes to show, you just keep hammering away at something and eventually it starts to make sense.

Well, there's still quite a bit of work to be done until it looks as good as in the picture! Thanks for the update!

AC,

Well, it looks like it's going up at a nice pace. I'm hoping there are some great places in there where you and Cuppa can enjoy a little shopping.

I did a bit of catch up and saw where you and ND were enjoying Jingle Bells. It's never too early to enjoy a little Christmas music.

As for the meltdowns, ND will eventually get over her separation anxiety. It's something that most kids go through. I remember Brandon having meltdowns because he had to go home. He's now 14 and still doesn't want to go home, but he hasn't had a meltdown since he was five.

Have a great day and enjoy our nice weather. Hope it's sunny in your corner of Ontario today. It's gorgeous here.

Blessings,
Mary

Looks better than any of the malls around here. They all seem to look the same to me but that one is cool.

A building with braces - what a picture those words conjure up!
