Leif's Hair Studio Build Out
This is obviously an older piece, I have left it up so you can see how our construction progressed.
So I just wanted to let everyone know how we doing since the move last year. It was a very big and scary undertaking and I never thought it would involve this much red tape. Everyone at Harris County Engineering Department seemed to have their hand in everything we were doing. We had to be inspected by everyone including the water district who kept us from opening our business for a week and half because we did not have drawings of our plumbing to their satisfaction. No one told me about all of these inspections so I was not prepared.
The Harris County engineering office is really not to be believed. They absolutely put us thru the wringer trying to get permits and inspections and get an electric meter so the contractors could get started. I know it is all done for the sake of “public safety”, I don't remember doing all of this when I build out the old salon in 1980 and nothing ever happened there.
Anyway we did move ahead, got all the permits and inspections and we did open for business mid August 2016. Every month since our opening is getting better and better and we are just thrilled to be in this location. The amount of new business that we are seeing at this location is phenomenal, I could not be happier. The new clients we are seeing are really really great and we love the neighborhood. When I read about Exxon Mobil moving to their campus south of the woodlands I knew that being closer to Exxon Mobil would help everyone who went into business in this area.
We put a small video together so you can see progress made during the construction, as you will see we did start from scratch. It was really awesome to see the all of the ideas that I had in my head come to fruition.
