Goodness Gracious. Could it really be that we are actually taking a step forward to the eventual completion of the renovations to our building (a.k.a Project Julie Loses Her Mind)?! Believe it or not, we are finally in the process of meeting with electricians, plumbers, HVAC guys, etc, getting estimates and planning some demo. Okay, as you can tell from the photos, we’ve started a bit of the demo, just to get a better idea of what is under carpets, behind walls, etc., but we have definitely left plenty for you to help us out! Please mark you calendars for Sunday, August 9th and Monday, August 10th. On that Sunday we’d like to remove carpeting and several walls upstairs, and tear apart a few walls and carpeting in the first floor, piling it as much as we can in the front half of the first floor. On Monday we’re planning on having the dumpster delivered, and then we’ll need a few more people to help haul everything that was torn apart on Sunday into the receptacle, plus tear out anything we couldn’t get to on that Sunday.
This is tentative at the moment, as it requires getting permission from the city to put a dumpster in a parking space in the public lot outside our building, but we don’t foresee a problem with that. We’ll know for sure early next week if this will be a go (I’m turning in the permit request tomorrow). If we have too many people for just demoing, we could probably put you to work clearing junk out of the basement, cleaning, or painting in the basement as well. We’ll provide refreshments and snacks, you bring your work gloves, protective eyewear (you smart nerds) and any good demo tools (crowbars, mallets, etc). Address is 1313 Second Street, downtown Stevens Point (by the Farmer’s Market). We’ll give you more details ASAP regarding times!
THANK YOU in advance!
