The structure will accommodate events up to 350 people and is to be used 9 months of the year.The Owner requested an alternate to provide limited AC to help with Cooling during the July/August use to help with humidity.

There is a proposed Bride’s room as part of this south section of the building which will be conditioned year-round. The Bottling/Storage building will be a 1 story 16’ eave high pre-engineered metal building to house bottling and barreling operations with metal exterior cladding and roofing. This building will be a slab on grade one-story structure with various bottling equipment.  This building will be fully conditioned.

At the south of the site is a proposed parking lot to accommodate 136 parking stalls and is presently planned to be paved with a permeable pavement.
