Working for the Widmer Brothers we renovated these two historic multi-story brick buildings. On the verge of condemnation, the Widmers’ purchased them for their growing brewery. We spent 5 years bringing the old wood storefronts and wood windows back to life, restoring existing where possible and making and installing new sash and doors to match.

Scope of Work:
  • All new beams and sheathing for 2 upper floors.
  • New footings in basement with steel posts up through existing walls
  • Steel, plywood diaphragm for seismic upgrade
  • All new interiors for brewery and offices, wood trim custom milled and finished to period.
  • Custom built conference tables
