Building a Barrel Warehouse

Building a barrel warehouse from the ground up is an involved task. This project broke ground at the start of 2015. We will document the construction process of the barrel warehouse (a.k.a. future home to many happy barrels of whiskey) on this page. Please check back to check on our progress!

This trench drain in the alley will help to better drain water in the alley. It is also heated under the slab to prevent ice build up in the winter. This will make for a nice and dry surface for what will be a heavily used area between the existing distillery on the right and the new barrel storage facility on the left.

Lots of dirt is being moved around to prepare for the slab to be poured. Light shines inbetween the roof panels before the roof is on. Holes are drilled in the roof for HVAC equipment and roof drains.

It’s a snowy day on the jobsite, but the work must go on. Over the past few days, the concrete foundation has been poured. Forms were pulled off today revealing the foundation. We now have an official jobsite sign too!
