On their Facebook page there a few construction-related photos about a new water line under Route 1 and about the newly-poured foundation and the preparation for it--no building yet. But soon!

The Bangor Daily News online had an article with pictures that describes the progress made on reconstruction of Helen's. David Barker (owner) said that they hope to reopen in late March.

It is really nice to see the building site start to really look like a building. A late March opening seems more and more possible.

Well Helen's new floor was poured last week. They had to wait until they had a few days above freezing. Lucky them. It hasn't been anywhere near that warm here for weeks.

For more photos/info, see their FB page:

I've wondered how all of our snowstorms and blizzard of the last 3 weeks or so have affected progress. There was a short video of nearby Lubec and their problems with the snow. Machias wouldn't be much different.

Impressive winter for Maine.

In a comment on their Facebook page, the owners of Helen's wrote that they were hoping to reopen in mid-April.

I have to return one of these days. My first and only visit was way back in 1998

I mentioned seeing the FB comment yesterday, and today the Bangor Daily has an article updating the rebuilding process with some quotes from the Barkers--the owners.

Machias, as both BB and WJ know, is a place that you really have to want to go there. Next stop Canada. 
I hope the new restaurant will work out well for owners, employees, as well as their customers.
