Not much left to do with for this location

Only way to probably make a change would be to get the land owner & CVS stores to fall in love w/ the existing building enough to renovate it to its existing charm: Here is the link to what the remodeled elevations are proposed to look like: http://docs.opkansas.org/sites/CityDocs/CityDocs/2007/...

Nice Design Will-

Can we see a floorplan of your layout? Are your upper cabs trimed in metal? Where can we get those 3d appliance models that you used in your rendering. We were looking for free 3d appliance models the other day to plug into a rendering, but could'nt find any.

Your gutter profiles are very nice. Did you have them replaced during your remodel? If so would you be interested in posting some dimensions of a section cut-of your gutters...? I will understand if there is a patent on the design.
