Greetings, fans of Habana Port. Today we post another segment on the buildout of our first cigar shop. The contractors appointed to this task bring several generations of experienced work and have done a tremendous job in constructing what will be the Northshore’s most magnificent humidor, lounge and cigar merchant. Below you will see pictures of the progress and categorized by the date we photographed the construction. Enjoy the pictures and descriptions!

The Shop is moving along now.
The wall near the front of the Shop has wainscot siding to add an element of class.
Pre-stained wainscot siding. The aroma of the wood is intoxicating for sure.

Painting has begun. We chose a bright yellow reminiscent of a Cuban atmosphere. This color works well for cigar shops and will immerse the lounger in a pleasant environment.
Our painter meticulously applies the paint. He puts on 3 coats to really enhance the look. Notice the stained wainscot now.

This is looking at the North wall where our high-def wide flatscreen television will entertain our smoking guests.
Now the wall is done.
Our owner is looking very pleased with the work that has been done so far.

Until the next post, siempre fumando,
