A design for a post-frame building was switched with a metal building system to meet the budget requirement for Pepper’s Fireside Grille. An inset girt condition and portal frames were used to get columns to land in ideal locations.

Maverick Steel Inc. erected Ceco Building Systems’ metal building system and installed 4,200 square feet of Ceco’s Battenlok HS standing seam roof system in Galvalume.

The façade was built with insulated metal panels (IMPs) and stone. Maverick Steel installed 3,800 square feet of Metl-Span’s 3-inch CF-42 Tuffcast IMPs in Surrey Beige. Baker Builders LLC was the general contractor.

The 4,200-square-foot restaurant features a glass garage door that opens to a 2,000-square-foot patio with an attached pergola and mountain views. When the project was completed in July 2016, the restaurant changed names from Pepper Jack’s Grille to Pepper’s Fireside Grille.
