Construction Update- FINAL UPDATE

Friends of Scouting,

As we come to a close on the Scout Shop Renovation, we can say that we are at 99.8 percent completion!  Some minor issues are being worked but for the most part, we are done!

We would like to invite everyone to our open house and rededication on October 3 from 5pm to 7pm with the rededication ceremony starting at 6pm.  There will be food and drink available so please stop by and check out your Scout Service Center!  Formal invitations will go out in the next few weeks.

We hope you enjoyed following this year long journey on this blog and we thank you for your patience as we worked through the dust and dirt, noise, vibrations, smells, and sometimes total craziness but we know that you will be thrilled at what you will see.

Construction Update

Friends of Scouting,

It's been almost a month since the last blog was posted because things were changing so fast around here!  We are happy to say that we are in full operation (Scout Shop and Offices) and about 97 percent completed.  The subcontractors are working hard to be done by mid next week and we will be excited to see them done!!  I must say these folks have been a real pleasure to get to work with and to form a working relationship that's not typical between an owner and a contractor.  They have gone above and beyond for us and we are thrilled.

The next blog post should hopefully tell you we are done!  We plan on having an open house/ribbon cutting/rededication in about 6 weeks or so, so watch for that on the web site-

Construction Update

Friends of Scouting,

We are almost done with the renovation!  We think about another week or so, the contractor should be done, at least with the inside portion.  There are still some work being done on the outside patio area, landscaping etc.  We have been closed all week so we could move the Scout Shop from the temporary warehouse location to the renovated Scout Shop.  You will be impressed with the new look and excitement it creates for the shopper!  The ladies have done a tremendous job and very long hours getting it ready to open Monday morning at 830am.  Thank you for your patience as well through this process.

As things happen next week, be aware of any parking lot changes (entry and exit), certain doors being locked (look for signs to get in), and other things happening around the area.  We want you to be safe!!

Construction Update

Friends of Scouting,

We will be closing the Scout Shop next week, Monday through Friday to move the shop back to its original location.

If you need any items such as advancements, clothing etc, you must get them this week.  We will not be able to make any sales as the computer system will be down and items will be in boxes.

Look for pictures soon!

Construction Update

Friends of Scouting,

What an awesome few weeks since the last blog posting!  We are ALMOST done with the renovation and we are excited every time we take a tour.  The bathrooms are 98 percent complete, the conference room has carpet down and ceiling tiles/lights installed.  The Scout Shop is going to be amazing for our customers.  The new counters, fireplace, tiles, and rock work are almost finished.  The outside entrance doors are installed and soon, they will be pouring the slab of the new patio.  You will be totally impressed by this area.  Below are a few pictures with more to come soon.

Construction Update

Friends of Scouting,

After several weeks since the last blog post, we are happy to report that the Scout Service Center should be completed around early June! 

The outside patio area is in work with the 12 columns being bricked with stone accents.  Why 12?  There are 12 points of the Scout Law and these represent those points! 

Inside, the bathrooms are finished and new outside entrance doors have been installed.  Glass is going in, ceiling grids are ready for tiles, and the beautiful display cases and new reception counters are being installed. 

What is really impressive is the cedar wood columns and gorgeous paneling that will stand out to all visitors.

We are anxiously awaiting completion and we, as always, appreciate your patience as we provide our customers (you) a great place to accomplish scouting business.

Construction Update

Friends of Scouting,

Lots of progress at the Scout Office over the past few weeks.  The parking lot is ready to be asphalted. The new Air Conditioning/Heating units are in, the Scout Shop area is coming together nicely, and the bathrooms are being tiled!

The new ceiling grid and tiles are going up this week and the walls have the initial coat of paint and texture.  Even the new security cages are installed!

We are looking at the end of May before we are ready to make the move and we can't wait to show this place off!
