If you’ve ever been in the lobby at our Southside Branch, you’ve surely noticed the beautiful tongue and groove ceiling—one of the most striking features of that 30+ year old building. When we began the design process for the new addition and remodel of the old building, one of the items we wanted to preserve was this beautiful wood. Since we will be lowering the ceiling to accommodate a state of the art training center in the old building, we decided to remove the tongue and groove and reuse it in the new lobby….our salute to the history of the old building and a way to reuse something that still has many years of beauty ahead. Our contractors cleaned up the edges of the old wood and refinished it. It is being installed right now in the new lobby. Check out the pictures—we just couldn’t wait to show you!
