SPUR Weekly Update!

Updated June 25, 2002

Renovations are underway! Check back every Wednesday for an update on the construction along with progress photos! Previous weeks' photos and updates are included as part of the SPUR photo diary. The full diary will be available on CD at the end of the project.

Check out the new historic artifact section in the diary that highlights some of the historic elements uncovered during the construction. Our very own urban archaeology project.

My apologies for not captioning pictures. If you have trouble identifying what the picture shows, the picture file names are fairly descriptive.

What's happened this past week

Construction is underway! Lots of activity has been happing this week. The concrete floor in Women's Head and the ex-work room has been demo'd to provide access to the plumbing. Wiring is going in around the first floor (dining room, living room, and chapter room). The wall between the library and Guest Head has been framed. Also, the kitchen infill into Cook's porch has been framed (the porch was demo'd and a new exterior wall started). The old wall was cut at the floor to allow the new floor to be filled in and was left to provide some security to the site. The old sprinkler valve has been removed and a backflow preventer has been installed.

What's happening this coming week

Full speed ahead! The electricians will continue wiring the house. The plumbers took over in full force today to start plumbing the kitchen and heads. The first set of windows will be taken out and fixed up.
