Our plan from day one was to provide you all with regular updates on our journey to open the Special When Lit: Pinball Electo-cade.
From early concepts through construction and all the way up to our grand opening, we will be documenting, photographing, and videoing all the changes this great space will go through. Check back early and often for the latest!
11/29/23 - Had a chance to stop by this afternoon to check the progress on the flooring. Things were looking good. The goal is to get the sealant and polish on by end of day Friday so it will have time over the weekend to cure.
11/22/23 - We have paint! So much progress was made in such a short week, it's incredible. We are so thankful for this crew that continues to do such fine work. Everything looks great!
All the rooms have been painted and the FRP installed in the bathrooms and kitchen. The back double door has been sealed off and the crew was just in the middle of installing the FRP panel while we were there.
On the electrical side of things, wires were pulled into the outlets in half of the main room. Electricians will be back next week to finish up. Also noticed a few of the new black ceiling tiles were installed and in place. We think these will look pretty sharp once they are all in. Also starting next week will be the floors. The crew will be in to polish the concrete. Can't wait to see those floors shine!
11/17/23 - Made it over this afternoon to find they had mostly completed the primer coat in all the rooms. They hope to get the painting completed by sometime early next week. The electrician had also dropped off a bunch of supplies and should begin running wire to all the outlets next week as well. Stay tuned..
11/15/23 - It's hard to tell in the pictures but the crew was just wrapping up the texturing this afternoon. The paint samples were on the walls when we arrived, so we were able to make our final selections. Paint should be ordered in the morning and hopefully we will see it start to go up on the walls as early as Friday. Things are starting to look great!
11/12/23 - Over the weekend the mudding and taping was mostly completed. Texturing should occur early this week once everything is sanded. We are awaiting paint samples to test on a few larger areas before we make a decision on colors. Painting will hopefully begin early next week.
As far as electrical goes; they got the outlet buried in the wall for our interior sign that will go by the window. They also installed the remaining 2' x 4' overhead lights in the kitchen, office and, lottery rooms. Look for another update this Friday!
11/10/23 - Had an onsite meeting today with our contractor and thing are really starting to come together. There should be a lot of progress happening over the next several weeks. Excited to show you all the progress.
The drywall is completed in all the rooms and mud/tape/texturing should be completed by the end of next week.
This week the HVAC guys made a lot of progress with the new duct work. They still appear to have a ways to go but hopefully this will be wrapped up in the next couple of weeks. That's all for now..
11/08/23 - Had a quick stop off today as I was heading through town. The drywall guys were there laying the insulation in the bathrooms getting them ready for sheet rock. They had also completed the back office and lottery room. Things are looking good!
There was also some more HVAC work going on. Will be back on Friday to get an official update posted. Stary tuned...
11/03/23 - More electrical work was done this week. They finished installing the outlets along the floors and a couple up mid-wall. The one that goes up high on the wall is for our interior sign by the front window. This outlet will have to be changed to run inside the wall so the sign can mount flush against the wall. All in all, everything is looking really good.
Also, this week the HVAC guys were onsite working on installing the new duct work. Once the interior work is done the new unit can be installed on the roof and connected. Hope this does not take too long. From the looks of things, a lot of progress was made this week.
