SPUR Weekly Update!

Updated August 13, 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.

Note: next week's update will be late (Wednesday or Thursday) as the photographer and webmaster will be out of town.

What's happened this past week

Wiring continued, along with additional ethernet wiring. Women's head has been framed and the shower stalls installed. Pit rooms have been framed in. More siding has been repaired and much of the exterior repainted a new shade of yellow. More rotted steam piping under the pit floor was replaced. Many of the window sashes have been reinstalled. Insulation and wall board is starting to go up. Rough electrical and plumbing inspections have been passed.

What's happening this coming week

Walls get closed up this week. Sheetrock goes up. Holes get plastered and walls get skim-coated. Tiling starts. Stairs arrive. Interior painting may start. Whole house fan goes in.
