Thank you to everyone who viewed and commented on the post about the exterior of 1155 S Plymouth Ave. We are super excited about the progress and have moved inside. Many people have asked or have been wondering when something will open and what it will be.
We have some answers....drum roll please...
This bar/restaurant will be owned and operated by Anthony D'Alessandro and Joe and I will be involved in the build-out, design and develop the branding and concept. That said, we are in the process of creating a LOGO for Tin Roof. We went to a website called hatchwise.com where you can create a contest to have a logo created. We will be receiving a number of logos from designers competing to win the contest. Once we start getting the options, we will share them with you and you can weigh in on which one you love the most. I created some vision boards for inspiration for the design of the space. I hope this will inform the designers when creating logo options!
Our target goal for the opening is the beginning of June, however that will depend on the liquor license!
We love your feedback so please leave a comment below!
As soon as we pulled up we saw this pile of wood in the back of the parking lot. Yesterday we decided on pallet wood for part of the project at 1155 S Plymouth. It is perfect. So we head in to find out if they were selling it. We are waiting to hear back on pricing. Hopefully it comes together because it's just what we're looking for.
We walk in and see this butcher paper roll. This is literally on my vision board for the interior design for this project. Perfect. I must have it! It's part of their sign...not for sale...blah...blah...blah...
The owner thinks his wife might have another one. My hopes are back up. She's already sold it. Damn it.
Joe went down stairs to find shutters that were the right size and I wandered around looking for some other pieces for the interior of 1155 S Plymouth Ave and I captured some items that I thought were amazing. If you are feeling like taking on a project...ie channeling your inner Joanna/Chip Gaines...or you have a place in your house that is missing some character...head over and pick up one of these items!
I love boxes. I feel like I can put them everywhere...the table in the foyer for mail...or all the crap, I mean stuff...i mean artwork that comes home in my kids folders, next to the chair in the living room with magazines, in the kitchen by the sink for soap and a sponge, in the bathroom for some wash cloths. That big thing with the drawers. Is that a card catalog?? Well, it's a amazing and would be perfect in a living room with a little clean up. Those pieces of molding would be perfect on a book shelf as book ends, or just as a stand alone piece.
It goes without saying...I need this! But don't we all...LOL.
If you check out ReHouse and pick something up post a picture in the comments! And if you do a DIY...please, please, please share your design!
It sat vacant and abandoned for years. We worked around it. Buying and renovating the houses and buildings up and down the street. But we knew to make a real change, we had to have that property! There are 2 residential apartments upstairs, which was a no brainer. We could handle those. The first floor commercial space and the exterior? Those were going to be a challenge. The commercial enterprise in this space and the visual impact has the potential for a big impact.
There was a lot of work to do. This place was ugly!
After a lot of demo...a full paint job...and re-paint. Which I can't believe Joe approved me changing a full body paint. We operate on pretty tight budgets. I come up with ideas and designs...and Joe figures out how to make it work usually with creative cost saving fixes. So when I suggested the paint job was not going to work...I was not expecting to get the okay on that one...But I did. And 2 colors no less.
We are finally getting close. We are getting to the final exterior touches and inside...We are really excited about what's happening in there. The design and concept is not ready to be revealed, but stay tuned because I think you are going to love it as much as we do!
Please comment below and let us know what you think of the design.
