SPUR Weekly Update!

Updated October 8, 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

Not much. Still waiting for subs to prepare materials, though we now have a bit of a schedule (see below). Some work has happened liek putting the message board back up in the phone hall, replacing the rollers on the sliding door to the dining room and other small things like that.
