And completed.

The windows are all folding. This was intended as a smoking patio. But, approximately 8 days after the "grand opening" Illinois changed it's smoking law so that folding walls/windows counted as walls and not opening.

F#ck.

2015, back to 3dsmax to render another building addition to build another new smoking patio. We were only going to do a stub out on the side of the building but once construction started we did a change order and sent the bump out down the entire length of the building

And for those interested in such an endeavor. The banks hate bars/restaurants. Forget about financing. It didn't matter how good our numbers were, they would not loan us money to build.

So we've been in a 100% cash pourback into the building to finance the construction for going on five years now.

The wonderful thing about this is that the building improvements are on a 20 year depreciation. Which means, to the IRS, the money spent to build was profit wrote down each year.

So, on top of taking no paychecks for five years, working 70-80 hours a week and not getting back any money I've put in, I show big income and get hit with massive tax bills each year on money I never took.

And back to the CI side of things, these are the two poweredge racks I mentioned I'm getting ready to build.

Some stuff is temped in, what some of you guys walk into when you take over one of those abandoned jobs you love so much.



This is all just for security cameras (32) with two years of storage in JBODS (the statute of limitations on a dramshop lawsuit)

That's a Talon DVR (with POS text insertion) and 48 8TB hard drives.

Can't wait to re-pull all that cat5 and move my HLX matrix. It's gonna be sooo much fun.
