325 N. Robinson Transformation

A small glimpse of the 6 month project converting an older restaurant into something hip and beautiful that is a perfect fit on this corner in the Fan.


What once there was...

The old Buddy’s Place.



The ONLY feature that was salvaged was the original Terrazzo floor that was put in by my mother in the 1950’s.




New storefront going in.  We wanted to add more natural light and opened the building up as much as we could.




A new restaurant deserves a fresh coat of paint!




A historic building wouldn’t be complete without Billy Pickett adding his touch.




Almost there.  New HVAC, new electrical and plumbing and we replaced the old original tin ceiling with an exact match.
