18 Jan Big Lake Brewing – Behind the Design
We recently completed the design and furniture build-out of the brand new Big Lake Brewing facility here in downtown Holland, MI. From the sign on the front of the building to the bathroom vanities, many of the features of Big Lake were crafted of reclaimed materials. We wanted to share the history behind some of the materials that went into the project.
Wood sourced from an 1840’s Maryland farmhouse was carefully handcrafted into the tables, bar-face, and wall treatments. Great care was taken to preserve the unique character of this wood while still providing a functional and practical surface.
The tables and bar-face, built from red and white oak floor joists, were hand-planed, hand-sanded, epoxy-filled and spray finished.
The banquet seating was locally sourced from a 70+ year old Oak tree grown in the banks of Lake Macatawa.
Custom metal table bases and railings were designed and crafted in house.
It was an incredibly exciting project to be a part of and as you can see, so much went in the details. If you haven’t been down to check it out, we highly recommend both the beer and the atmosphere!
