Creating An Entrance

The facade of 83 Warwick Street has changed pretty drastically within the past couple of days as our new vestibule is being framed out. The vestibule is made of reclaimed materials including 6×8′ posts and beams salvaged from a bridge project in Rhode Island (thanks to Architectural Timber and Millwork of Hadley, MA), sliding glass door panels from our store, and naturally rot resistant locust wood milled from trees harvested during the construction of our parking lot.

Besides keeping in line with our mission of reusing valuable materials, the attached vestibule helps to reduce heat escaping from the building, and is among many other energy efficient features in our construction.
