Whew. The past 3 weeks have flown by, not without adventure though! The last time we checked in, we had a long list of things that had been completed, and this time, the list is shorter, but mighty. First up, we got salty. FIVE THOUSAND POUNDS OF SALTY. It was a bit of a twisty-turny situation getting the salt, as the Labor Day holiday caused a bit of chaos in the shipping world. Our poor salt missed a connection, then it was separated from its shipping orders, then it was le
I know, I know, ANOTHER post already? Yep. Our construction team is rocking it. We're right on track, and we just passed the electrical inspection. Since the last construction update, you'll see only subtle changes. Look for those electrical cables running throughout the entire facility. They're pretty cute, yes? So, what's next? Still a lot, but starting next week, they'll begin hanging a bit of drywall, and start prepping for the floors to be painted and covered with a beau
After years of envisioning what this center will look like, it's so gratifying to see it being built, day by day, piece by piece. It has certainly shifted and evolved along the way, and I'm sure it will continue to do so in the next few weeks, but it's coming together beautifully. If you've been following our past posts, you've seen the progress thus far. This week, we check another mark off our progress checklist: framing. The rooms are actual rooms instead of just drawings,
It's officially official... we have state and city permits, and are all set to break ground... literally! We start the biggest part of the construction project next week - plumbing. Since our last update, we had a few changes in direction. We changed contractor teams, and we've been working to lock down the details of the construction project, business insurance, and the loose ends for our business loans. I realized yesterday that it's been a year since we first looked at the
Hi future floaty friends!
As I mentioned in my last blog post, we're committed to keeping you informed about our progress in building this beautiful new space. As of today, we're still waiting for permit approval from the state of Indiana so we can begin construction. We want to ensure we're being completely forthcoming with our progress, since our original target opening date has already passed. One thing we've learned already is that when other people are involved, we rea
In July, we announced a promotion to give away free floats and other prizes. Our first giveaway was a random drawing for anyone who RSVP'd to our Facebook event and tagged friends. The second promotion was a chance for anyone to share their story about why they deserved free floats for a year. Up first, our giveaway winners.... Selected by a random number generator, congratulations to Brandy, Jerri, and Linda! And next, the "Share your story" contest.... After reading throug
As we're gearing up for our big construction projects, we don't want to lose focus on why we're doing this. We want to help our local community, and we know that floating has so many benefits for so many individuals. With that in mind, we're really excited to offer TWO ways to try floating for free! First up: Win Free Floats for a Year! We'd love to get to know our community, and we'd love to share the amazing benefits of floating with as many people as we can. With that in m
