Work on the new Griot’s Garage headquarters continues to buzz along, and a recent visit to the site saw Richard Griot beaming like a kid on Christmas. As he excitedly showed us around, stepping over chalk lines and dodging drywallers on stilts, we managed to snap a few photos of the action. Add these to the project scrapbook!
For context, a rough diagram of how the space is divided…
Outside the building…
The South wall shows all new windows and red flashing along the roof.
That wall (and 3 others) will be bisected by pillars like this.
On the West side, one new window was created and the others enlarged.
The Retail Store and Car Care School brickwork has been completed.
These forms will support posts for the covered outdoor entertaining area.
Former loading doors are ready for windows, and bricks are laid (North).
Windows are installed in the Retail Store.
The view from the Store into the Museum gives a good sense of scale.

We begged our parents for these things as kids. And it still looks fun!
Many of the ceilings will have these coved areas for lighting. Nice detail!
