Prompted by the conversation about Schreiter's, I took a few pictures on Monday morning that I thought might be of interest.

I am by no means a contractor however, wouldn't it be wise to sandblast and finish the outside walls before installing the windows ?

I was wondering about that myself. But they may be planning to do chemical paint removal; sandblasting has some risk of damaging the brick surface.

I've been wondering about that as well - hoping that the original (buff?) brick is still intact and able to be uncovered.  It definitely wouldn't be done by sandblasting - if I'm not mistaken, the buff brick that one finds in this part of Ontario is fairly soft.

Unless they're just planning to repaint it .....  Is there a render somewhere of the finished project?

Also - these are just window frames - there's no glass in them yet.

On the Gaukel St side of the building they have started to remove the white paint from the building's exterior. It is looking pretty good so far.
