Renovations are Underway!

After months of planning and waiting, renovations are finally underway at Shep’s Place! Adam Farinelli, Caleb Gardner and their crew from KC Custom Design have been hard at work for the last week.

The primary task now is fixing the plumbing for the new bathroom, dog wash, and sink for the kennel. There are lots of deep, scary trenches being dug.

To make the house and bathroom ADA accessible, we had to widen the garage doorway by cutting through 18 inches of stone wall.

The right side of the doorway into the garage / kennel room had to be widened by 6″, which required them to cut through an 18″ thick stone wall.

Inside the kennel room, they are putting up framing for the walls and ceiling.

They also had to widen the door into the new “human bathroom”, and are working on the plumbing for it.

It’s a big mess now, but we’re very glad to see it finally taking shape. We’ll keep you posted as the work progresses.
