It’s time for all our salvage doors to be put back in service. What fun! All these doors were headed for the landfill, and they are beautiful, turn-of-the-century, oak, maple, pine, dark, light, skinny, fat– you name it! We are covering the north wall just inside our entrance. This type of feature would never be possible without first, the vision of Jean Dufresne our architect. He saw this wall over a year ago, and has been working on its refinement throughout construction.
This week new wall paneling was put up in the kitchen. We used Acrovyn 3000 wall protection in ‘ocean gray’ which is a light gray-green color. These panels are PVC-free, which means they do not contain a dangerous plastic that is detrimental to our health and environment. Acrovyn 3000 is also LEED Silver Certified, recyclable, and class 1 fire rated.
I received a revised schedule from our contractor this week; we are waiting for our very special light fixtures for our dining room. They help us achieve a 35% energy reduction in our lighting use. (they better, they cost enough!) Anyway, we are looking forward to construction completion the latter part of July.
I gave tours to a few different friends yesterday; one was kind enough to snap a shot of me outside the Kitchen. I’m holding a fabric sample of our future theater curtain that will hang in the dining room. I’m so happy to be showing the space to friends that mean so much to me; it’s a little overwhelming that after two years, our doors are close to opening!
