This section of the east wing was exposed when the southern portion was deconstructed:
Now workers are creating a new brick face on it, blending in with the current surface. It already looks great!
Elsewhere on the exterior, roofing on the new addition is almost done, work continues on gutters and metal trim on the roofing.
Work on the road to the new entrance and parking area will begin soon. We will salvage gravel and rock used for the existing construction road to use elsewhere after the renovations are complete.
Countertops and vanities are being installed on the third floor, most of the second floor has been painted and tile work will begin soon.
We haven’t fallen too far behind on our projected finish date. Slowdowns have been due to the thickness and hardness of some walls (which, really, is a good thing overall) that necessitated bringing in different equipment.
We also have been slowed because of the extra time we are taking to select and match existing pieces of wood trim we have recycled. Rome wasn’t built in a day either….
