FHD 2022 Week 3 - 4
Installation time in Tennessee! Here are the highlights…
Time for a road trip.
During Week 3 we finished loading the trucks and headed for the Abraham Lincoln Library & Museum in Harrogate Tennessee.
The task was installing 26 of our Upland Showcases into the newly remodeled space.
The installation went very well, but it was hard work.
We couldn’t have done it without Brad & his crew. They moved over 60,000 lbs of steel, glass, and MDF to the second story of the building in one day, without any equipment or elevators.
With the components in place, assembly could begin.
Case frameworks were bolted together.
Then moved into place and adjusted to be perfectly level and plumb.
Glass was installed.
Then the trim, locks, and lighting.
And apparently they even found time to goof off, just a bit.
I’m very proud of the work the team did, and will share more photos of the products themselves at a later date. These display cases are going to be a great addition to the Upland line.
But by the end of Week 4, it was back to the Kansas workshop to start in on the next project. There is no time to waste given our workload!!
One other note from the week–Graham found a little extra time to create a portfolio page for a recent project we hadn’t gotten around to promoting much yet, the M.T. Liggett visitor center.
I’ve gotten some comments recently that the newsletter has been a little too focused on production lately. So here’s a chance to read a bit more about the design process from a recent project. Check it out: /work/mt-liggett/

"I thoroughly enjoy getting the emails that, in a short, succinct way, clearly give an overview of the projects you are working on.
I like how you enjoy the highs of the job and let us know about the lows, which everyone has, so it's relatable.
I know it must take time to do this weekly digest, but it's one of the highlights of my day when I get to read it. Thank you and carry on!"- Wendee
