Carther’s Roadhouse – Transforming a 200 yrd old adobe into a Restaurant/Bar
My client bought a 200 yr old adobe building in Del Norte, Co that used to be a service station. The town needed a bar/restaurant for the locals to hang out in, so we decided to hone in on 1910’s automobile memorabilia and make it feel like a garage/service station/car museum to pay homage to it’s history. When they were pressure washing the outside, they discovered the original lettering on the sign. After months of calls and research, they located the original tow truck that was pictured in an old archived photo, and it has been restored and is now in it’s original home, along with some other fun 1910 era automobiles. The adobe walls couldn’t handle screws or nails, so we had to get very creative when hanging all the memorabilia. Needless to say, it’s been a huge success and is now a destination spot for this small town in southern Colorado.
