Last week, the leader of our design and construction team, Peter Gutkin, pulled up outside our factory with a parklet in the back of his pick-up. He and his team unloaded the sub-base framing pieces and officially began on-site construction! Check out the progress below.
It will take a lot of hard work getting the floor of this structure exactly right. The angles need to perfectly match those to the street and the floor must be flush with the curb and sidewalk. Total construction time should be pretty quick though, and we expect our team to finish building in about two to three weeks.
In order to document on-site progress, we’ve set up a nifty time-lapse camera near our front door that snaps a photo of the parket every 10 minutes. By the time construction is complete, we will have enough photos to create a short video to replay the parklet coming to life.
In the meantime, party planning has commenced! Once we have a more clear completion date in site, we will be sending out an invite to all you party goers. In other reward news, tote bags have been printed, bitters are being bottled, and nibby bars are receiving their special labels. We are hoping to ship all of these exciting creations out in the coming weeks. Lastly, event-based rewards are available for sign up. If you haven’t seen the sign up link for your chocolate factory tour, cheese and beverage pairing, or cocktail-making class, or if you have any questions at all, please reach out to Dana through Kickstarter, or send an email to email@example.com.
