They saved the original floor.  There was a layer of flooring that was put right down over the original floor.  It is being restored to the original floor which is estimated to be over 100 years old.  Throughought the project care was taken to try to save as much of the original elments from the building.

Rudder Reconstruction Update 3/30/09

Anyone that has been reading the blog for a while knows about my fascination with construction projects around town.  I’ve been keeping up with the Rudder reonstruction on Rocky Neck this past winter but FINALLY I got to go inside to tape some video for YOU, my loyal readers!  Sweet!  Who brings you inside like your boy Joey?  Nobody!

Anywho, hee is a pic of the chef of many years, the infamous Wheels who had been at Dogbar all winter but will resume his duties at The Rudder come opening day.

Look for the video tour of the guts of this favorite summer haunt of many Gloucester resident and tourists alike tomorrow morning at 10:00AM.
