We’ve come to the end of our renovations on the shop …. if you haven’t stopped or driven by, here’s the big reveal. For the exterior, the building and the canopy have been freshly painted in variations of our company colors, we have new asphalt and landscape rock, barn lights, and a mailbox. We also replaced broken storefront windows, removed two 10,000 underground fuel tanks and installed new fencing.
Inside we painted, built a half wall, installed new cabinets and counters, removed miles of wiring, replaced an entire wall, and put up corrugated metal in the bay. And there is a beer fridge, so ….. come and visit!

Last month we closed on this gem of a building, which has sat vacant for quite some time. Back in high school, Joe pumped gas here as a teen. The fuel tanks are gone now! Happily, extensive renovations are underway (because while Joe spricht Deutsch, no hablamos español)! We look forward to reconnecting with a lot of our Frei Plumbing customers from the old days. It’s been great to visit with all those who have stopped by out of curiosity.
With any luck, our operations and equipment will be moved next month….we’ll post updates on our progress in the coming weeks.
