Here are some scenes from the recently concluded construction project--as well as some photos of our
plumbing for you tradesmen-types. Some marvelous work was done by the skilled contractor Build Corps, Inc. and
their subcontractors. This team removed the library's non-functional fireplace and re-routed pipes.
In both library and dining room, Build Corps installed new electric service and light fixtures, flooring, ceiling and painting.
When that was finished, we were able to replace some of the very tired (and remarkably uncomfortable) library furniture.
The work began Thanksgiving week of 2010 and concluded in early January, 2011--on time and
