Uniquely Southern Oregon

A polished white oak tree from Millerville Farms was placed very carefully by the crew of All Construction Elements, LLC and other helpers, such as Matt Miller, into the newly constructed basement of Taylor’s Country Store Tuesday, Sept. 27. Thanks to co-owner Terry Taylor, the Illinois Valley News got a sneak peek into the basement and a brief update on the progress of the soon-to-be fine dining restaurant. Michael Garnier, local legend from Out-In-About Treesort, will be building a staircase around the pretty white oak in the future underground restaurant. The project was held up a bit this summer due to engineer inspection delays, but Taylor said they are hoping for an opening day of Jan. 1.
