Barrel Roof; A Classic Architectual Design For This Millenium!

Tuesday, April 15th, 2008

After consulting with our G.C., Don Hacklin, Vince and I agreed that one of the most important design features for Moondance is the unmistakable barrel roof. He recommended Supreme Building Supply in Bear River, Wyoming to take the unique challenge of designing and constructing this classic diner feature in compliance with our state codes. It wasn’t long before the computer-generated design was faxed our way and manufacturing of each individual truss commenced . It was very fascinating to see the roof take shape as each individual truss assembled similiarly to a line of cadets ready for command.  The unison and unqiue shape caught the eyes of passers-by as well.

Like sister, like friend… now team member.

On April 5th, the  most recent recruit for Team Moondance leaped aboard this “Merry-Go-Round” project we are so very passionate about. Just as most of this journey with Moondance Diner has happened with little regard to  conventional processes…. the means in which Team Moondance is evolving is proving to be no different. Tanya is truly a unique asset to Moondance Diner and I cannot wait to share in this experience with her. In addition to an outstanding resume detailing her work history, education, and qualifications…. it is her ability to visualize her role in this dream and how she can become part of the Moondance Magic. Although we are very different from one another, we  have a shared a childhood, adolescence, young adulthood and that ever-so-clever mid-age creeping upon us. We are a well-needed balance for each other and often find great humor and satisfaction in working together. High five sis… here’s to more memories and all the times Mom really meant for us to “just get a long!” I am fond of the opening to a favorite song by ENYA ….

“Who can say where the road goes, where the day flows, only time…..”  For those who have little time or no time left at all we will do our best to make the most of ours.
