Thanks for the update! Ditto what buzzy56 says, I think a lot of us enjoy seeing the progress you are making on this station renovation.

This is going to be stunning when finished. I hope sometime when I'm up in Dallas I can drive by and appreciate this beauty in person. That tin ceiling is fire!

Another update- got the west parking area poured and completed Friday while dodging rain showers. The concrete guy did a really good job. Now all the concrete work remaining is the "courtyard" area and he should get to that this week or next, hopefully.

We got a lot of work done this weekend. I spent some time up on the ladder replacing broken tiles. My legs are still rubbery from going up and down the ladder. Each one of the tiles has to be chiseled out by hand so the surrounding plaster/stucco doesn't suffer too much damage.

I think I'm done on the west side- all the tiles that I am going to replace are replaced. Still have to go back and grout them. I think they look pretty good, 4 on this side had to be replaced.

The roof over the addition to the secondary building was was a disaster. The original roof didn't have enough slope, and it was rotted. Then the previous owners added another roof over it, and it rotted. So they shaved 2x6s and put tin over the whole mess, and it leaked. All of the old roof was ripped off and a new roof built. It was made heavy-duty since the AC compressor is going on top of it.

I spent all day yesterday in the bathroom. And no, it wasn't due to bad burritos for lunch. The wall between the interior men's room and the exterior ladies room was a water-damaged, termite-devoured mess. A sledgehammer, couple other hammers, grinder and shovel and wheelbarrow and the wall is gone. Going to re-frame the wall and foam insulate it.

Was able to salvage the original sign for the men's room- the varnish/paint on it cleaned up nicely.

Hope to get the windows and doors that are remaining in sometime soon. The HVAC equipment that we ordered is in and at the shop, ready for installation when it's time. The interior bathrooms in the secondary building are framed and electrical is in process. I'll get some photos of the framing when I get by there today.

I've learned a lot on this reno. Mostly, though, I've learned don't say what you're going to do until after you've done it. Every step of the way things change for a variety of reasons and what you thought would do changes. But overall, it's been a blast.
