Wijk Winery is a family owned venture of which I am a part. We presently produce wine in Pleasant Hill, IA, which can be purchased at dozens of locations across Central Iowa; including grocery stores, art galleries, and even farmer's markets. We are moving our winery to a new location in Sully, Iowa after we finish remodeling an old church we acquired from the city. The building has been completely gutted; plaster, flooring, electrical, plumbing...everything. The only thing original to the building is its foundation and external frame. The old wood siding has been replaced with stone, we doubled the height of the tower; and we intent to erect two more towers in the back.
In this new winery location, we will have a space for weddings, receptions, events, as well as a licensed dinner theater. My original plan called for some pretty expensive in-wall speakers & subs, but after joining this forum I received 100% feedback that these would not be sufficient for our application. Further research and refinement of my plan has led me to building all of the speakers and subs for our dinner theater, as well as the sound for our live music stage adjacent to the dinner theater. I have included many pictures in this build threat to walk you through the evolution of the cinema sound in our Winery's Dinner Theater.
P.S. I am not sure if anyone is interested, but if you click here you can view the construction album for the overall winery on facebook. The album is open to the public (you don't have to "like" us to view it). If you are not so inclined, below is an image of the entrance to our dinner theater.
July 4, 2010: We tour a vacant former church for the first time. It is owned by the city and there is a proposal to demolish the 1929 building and sell the two lots on which it rests for residential housing. The structure is excellent, and is on a poured foundation. Our proposal is made for us to purchase the old church and turn it into our winery; thereby creating jobs, bringing business to the town (not to mention giving the citizens of Sully something to do). In December 2010, we purchase the property for $1.
