Without parked cars lining the street, it really is a
Grand Avenue! We are making a mess with the
backhoe to lay down footings for the ramp, bilco door
and front porch.
Forms to pour footings for ADA Ramp.

Here's a photo from our West Side Festival which takes place every September. The red building is 70 Beekman St which was completely renovated early this decade and houses an Art Gallery and a very special shop called Mimosa owned by Michelle and Michael LaLonde. One part of the shop specializes in fine craft accessories for home and wear, the other is a painting and art furniture gallery. It is a must-stop on Beekman Street. www.mimosagallery.com
Our next door neighbor on Grand Ave. Needs some TLC, nice Victorian details...
Beekman Artists Co-op at 79 Beekman St.
This building houses clay artists on the first floor and painters on the second floor.
Beautiful outdoor sculpture garden, perfect for pleine air events in the spring and summer. http://www.beekmanartists.com
As requested from one of our followers, here are some other buildings in the neighborhood.
You can see they range from mid 1800's federal style to Victorian to 21st century! It is an eclectic mix which is what we love about the West Side...

Next big step; Drywall.
It has been an entire month since my last post (busy with design work for our trade show in Baltimore.) The wintery month of February has come and gone but the intrepid crew at 143 Grand springs forward...Rough electrics, plumbing, and heating were completed, inspected, and approved. Framing to accomodate the insulation and drywall was finished up.
