Chesapeake Western Depot Project – Framing Update
The progress on the Depot continues with this nice weather. The framing crew has been hard at work to get the second floor secure (lots of water damaged materials have been replaced). There are only a few new walls that are being added to allow for restrooms and a first floor conference room. Skyline roofing has also been on site finishing up the new roof on the office portion of the building. The building is now safe to walk around on the second floor (mostly).
Some of the unique details of the building are emerging as things are cleaned up and damaged portions of the building are removed. The original integrity of the design is being maintained. It continues to amaze me that this structure built in 1913 is still functional and beautiful. I am looking forward to seeing it come back to life and shine.
Some additional historic photos were located to verify the original design. We still have not found any interior photos of the structure. If you have any, let us know.
Design on the exterior signage is in the works with Eddie Edwards Signs. What do you think?
Progress on the interior design continues. Here are some more selections that have been made for the restrooms and the break room. Our goal is to show a variety of styles around the building to act as a showroom for future projects.
