We have added in our own personal savings and what we have made in sales over the five months to bring it up to cover the $17,900.00 costs of the septic, the well digging and installation, hot water heater and plumbing supplies (not including bathroom).
We currently have under control:
- the septic complete and ready to be brought into the building
- the well has been dug and pump installed
- we have been doing as much as we can of the internal plumbing lines installation ourselves to save on labor costs
- hot water heater purchased and installed
Even though we are so close… we cannot say for sure when we will be back in production and can’t make any promises on whether we will still be able to open the tasting room in the spring. We’re working as much as we are able to and as fast as we can, even in this arctic -14° weather!
Still to go – Next steps:
- complete running plumbing lines inside building
- bathroom, tasting room sink and cleaning station installation
- running plumbing/pipes from septic into building
- building bathroom walls
- constructing floor above concrete
- purchase and install toilet and sink in bathroom
- purchase and install cleaning station equipment
- install tasting room sink
- create drainage in building
- jackhammer floors

- Professionally re-do floors
- Heat Upgrade

- Entryway: finish construction, décor and make a path from parking area
- Set up cocktail bar areas (shelves, dry sink, racks, refrigerator etc.)
