with move in one month away, things are under control on the remodel of 508 main street. the wall angles are crazy and the mudding difficult, but things are looking fun in the soon to be new headquarters for the Huerfano World Journal. I have a killer painter coming in this week for painting blast and then we start to wrap up the details. stay tuned.....
There is a lease on the other side of my sisters building... bottom floor. So now it is time to juggle a remodel, a tiny home project and a school garden. Did someone bite off more than they can chew and or swallow??:) Luckily I have three months to pull this space off for some very special tenants. This remodel again will be made possible with the help of some of my killer Construction and Design students. More to come soon!!
a great "kick off" to the school year with a freshman academy and lots of fun. congrats to our new principal. gunny, for making a "splash" (another pun sorry) and getting this year heading in a great direction. i am also very appreciative for his hard work in getting me hired full time this year. more to come:)
it looks around 85% likely that i will be hired again by the school to teach 6 electives. the new principal is making a big effort to get me hired as a full time teacher and retain me, which is my desire. i will again have 2 construction and design classes with a structural emphasis and then create 2 classes of C&D with an agricultural emphasis. (excited about this one, as we get to help architect the school farm) my other 2 electives will be PE and i will be doing a yoga/body maintenance class and a straight PE class with an emphasis on outdoor sports and recreation. as i am looking forward to this opportunity again, working with the kids of this community... the end of summer found me quicker than i had planned.
the last week, and all the little things, are always the hardest to get through in a project. but when it is all done it is very rewarding. 510 looks good, a little tweak here or there and its one of the best rentals in walsenburg. i appreciate all the help i got from jarrod this past week on the electric and keeping his head down to wrap this baby up.
the loft project is coming to a close with the most important thing to come.... electric:) ill have a final set of photos at the end of this week and anne will move in next weekend.
we are getting down to all the finishing touches, with a little painting left and another coat of poly on the front floor. the plumbing is basically done and we are focusing on the electric for the last 2 weeks. move in date Aug 1st:)
4 more weeks to wrap this mainstreet project up. my sister is in town this week to help and i am looking to get a lot of work done in the next two weeks. august looks like a tip to Oklahoma and Texas and a job or two. always looking for work...and will travel:)
i am starting a new remodel this week, half of the bottom floor of my sisters new building here in walsenburg. stay tuned for more pics of the progress on the new downtown loft.
