Crews from Drury Designs have headed to the roof to begin the restoration work on the former Teweles and Brandeis grain elevator. The granary has spent much of its time on the east side of Sturgeon Bay untouched, but work began this week to install temporary windows and repair the roof to close in the building. Contractor Pat Drury says the biggest challenge right now is simply moving around the structure at such a high elevation.
Once the entire building is enclosed at the top, Drury says crews will head inside to power wash the interior’s walls. The former grain elevator was moved to property owned by developer Peter Moede on March 29.
