SPUR Weekly Update!

Updated November 26, 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

Front porch railings were finished except for the ramp section. The last of the dorm sashes was installed. More interior finish work, including door and window casing. Some exterior painting was done. Lots of small finishing work is being done.

What's happening this coming week

I'm going to punt the weekly update for next week because of the Thanksgiving holiday. Over the next two weeks, the main construction should mostly be completed (assuming the painters get moving. A few things will not be done, including: bathroom and dining room cabinetry (4 weeks, we finally have shop drawings!), front door replacement (4 weeks, we finally have shop drawings!), oil-to-gas conversion, exterior painting (weather dependent), and figuring out a solution to the dorm ventilations that doesn't annoy a neighbor or two.
