    McKay & Smithson Block

    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
