30 Jun The Bowden Update 6/30/2017
I hope that you have been able to follow our picture updates throughout the last couple of weeks to keep track of the many changes that are happening on site at The Bowden! We couldn’t be happier with all of the great progress that has been made!
Before continuing, I wanted to let you know that this will be the last construction update with pictures. We are getting closer and closer to the finish line and we want to unveil the final product without giving too much away as to what The Bowden will look like with all of its finishing touches completed! It is going to be a beautiful facility and we want to highlight that when it is fully completed and operational!
First off, in the Event Center, you can see from the pictures that the ceilings that are almost finished. The crown molding is being finalized and the supports for our beautiful chandeliers are just waiting to be painted. The 9ft. tall glass doors all around the facility have been added. This is a good thing because we have the air conditioner running (thank goodness!) and those help keep the cool air inside. The front lobby looks amazing with its lighting fully installed and turned on. It is going to be a beautiful welcome area for all of the guests that visit The Bowden. The domed areas at the corners of the hallway are waiting to be painted. They add a unique feature to an already beautiful hallway.
Also, the kitchen has made great progress. On top of the tile being completed on the floor, the walls have been finished as well. They have installed our walk-in cooler as well as all of the connections for the many different kitchen appliances that we are going to be using for our in-house catering!
Making our way to the Holly Chapel, the walkway pillars have been prepped to add their exterior coating. With the dark wood stain of the trusses over the walkway, the walk from the chapel to the event center will be a beautiful one.
The Holly Chapel has had all of its exterior stonework completed the last couple of days. The rear has been finished and it will provide an excellent backdrop for any events we may host on the patio in the rear of the chapel. The final windows are about to be added to the chapel to further complete the look of being outdoors while maintaining the comfort of being inside! The bridal and groom suites are coming along nicely. We have toured several groups of people over the last couple of weeks and everyone is impressed with how large our suites are. People will be hard pressed to find a better space to get ready for their ceremony!
All-in-all, The Bowden is progressing nicely. After speaking with the superintendent, even more changes will be coming over the next couple of weeks. I will be updating everyone on the changes, but without the pictures.
Like always, if you would like more information about The Bowden or would like to tour the facility, please feel free to fill out our information form on the “Contact” tab at the top of the screen.
Thank you for your support of The Bowden and what it means for the community!
