SPUR Weekly Update!

Updated September 17, 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

We've moved in! While the house isn't finished, we have an occupancy permit and are living in the house.

The hardwood floors were installed. Window hardware was mostly finished. Men's Head and the kitchen are operational. Pit Proper and part of the hall is tiled. Women's Head is tiled and nearly operational. Painting continued on the first floor with the living room, chapter room, and dining room. Patching and painting the Pit personal rooms started. Trim work continued.

What's happening this coming week

Front Hall and stairs will be painted. Pit rooms will be finished off. The main push is to prepare the house for Rush.

There will still be much work remaining to do, but the majority of the interior of the house will be mostly done.
