Conowingo Diner

This 1946 Silk City Diner, originally from Conowingo, Maryland, (serial number 4657 ) measures approximately 15 foot wide by 40 foot long. It was designed to seat 32 along the front windows at 8 tables and another 16 along the counter. Two of the counter stools were removed and the counter was modified.

A roof tear down was done to the original base with inspection and replacement of the wood substrate and installation of a new 20 year roof membrane. The curved lower roof galvanized panels were sanded to bare metal and coated with a silver roof coating. The frame was inspected and sanded to metal before a new coat of primer and top coat were applied. All new insulated windows were installed to increase the thermal efficiency of the diner.

This diner currently awaits a buyers input as to floor plan, color schemes etc.

Some seating layout changes could be made to allow for additional seating (up to 52 seats). Of course, we could also supply exact materials to expand the diner into an annex for much greater seating if desired.
