Progress Update on New Soft Star Workshop - Spring 2016 Rebar Party

By Softstar @Soft_Star_Shoes

It has been several months since our staff took a trip to see our new workshop, which is still undergoing renovations. The historic building and former roller skating rink has come a long way since construction began last year. The crumbling walls have been reinforced, windows are now cut into place and a shiny new roof is keeping everything dry. The original beauty of the classic structure is emerging a little more every day.

Putting our new floors in place is the next big step in the construction process. Foreman Alan wants to preserve as much of the original wood flooring as possible for our customer showroom. Our production space, on the other hand, will soon have a new heated concrete floor slightly lower than the showroom (in the former skating area). This will give local customers a great view of our shoemakers at work. Preparing these floors involves a lot of work scraping clean those old wood panels and laying rebar to support the new concrete. Always happy to lend Alan a hand, we decided it was time to close the shop for half a day and send our hardworking shoemaking elves to the construction site for another work party.

By the way, if you missed our last work party where we all helped raise the roof of the building, then you may want to watch our fun roof raising video.

Here are some photos of the work we did, and the lastest images of our new space:

Now that the rebar is ready we hope to have the concrete laid within the next few days. We're still shooting for a fall move-in date, so stay posted for updates!
