Oddyssea Shop in Half Moon Bay Construction Complete, no fixtures

We identified the physical space for our shop in Half Moon Bay, California in January, 2012. We started talking about the project in early February, 2012 when the renovation got underway. Now, April 2, 2012, we have completed the renovation of the physical space (with lots of expert help on the floors, electric, framing, plumbing, and phone/internet.)

Spouse, Daughter, and I were roaming in the space this evening enjoying the fruits of many people’s hard work and dedication inclusive of:

The flooring company, the HVAC company, and the drywall company (landlord engaged, I don’t know their names, but they deserve special mention for the great results.) The electrical contractor – Bowerman Electric (thanks Steve & crew!) Katja Rimmi for color selection. Larry Mohr (and associates) for painting execution. Rob Genovesi who installed the phone and internet from Coastside Net. Bill Mahar from Alain Pinel Reality who helped us navigate the lease and associated documents.

And last, but certainly not least, Paul & Mary Bettencourt. The Bettencourts own the entire building which houses Cottage Industries, an apartment, and our new store. Paul & Mary didn’t behave as landlords, rather as partners in helping us shape the space and ready it for our new venture. We couldn’t have gotten here without their active support and contribution to the finished space. We thank them from the bottom of our hearts.

We’re now fully in fixture and inventory mode. We expect the first shipment of fixtures to arrive this week. It’s a great adventure and we can’t wait to share the new store with anyone who wishes to visit! (Once we open our doors for business 😉 )
