Construction Update

Friends of Scouting,

This week has been very productive.  The new Air Conditioning/Heating Units are installed and new duct work is taking place.  Both restrooms have been demolished and the plumbers are heard at work remodeling them (they will now be ADA).  A few of the display cases are installed and we are anxiously waiting for the Millwork (carpenters) to finish building all the cabinets.  If you drive by, you will see that the parking lots on the east side is no longed there.  Grant Construction has removed the asphalt and all the concrete that will be replaced soon.

We are anticipating a mid-May completion and we are ready!

New wall mounted toilets will be attached to the plumbing in this picture

Construction Update

Friends of Scouting!

What two weeks can do in a renovation!.  Last week while many of us were enjoying Spring Break, the contractors were working hard tearing out the old.  The main area where the Scout Shop was, the counter, the walls, dressing rooms, and the bathrooms have been totally removed.  The pavement on the west side has been repaved and is open for parking.  The building has now spayed on insulation which will help us keep our heating and air conditioning bills down. 

I have included many pictures of what this past week brought us- enjoy and thanks for your ongoing support and patience.

Construction Update

Friends of Scouting,

Well, the day finally came last week and we have moved into our new offices!  It's great to be back and enjoying the new look and have a little privacy to do business.  The Scout Shop has also moved into their temporary area which is located in the warehouse.  You may soon be entering in the north door which is the warehouse main door to do any business with the Scout Shop or Staff.  We will let you know as best we can as we rely on the Contractors to give us the time lines.

The North parking lot has been repaved and looks great.  The stripping will take place in the next day or so and then we will have you park in that area as we close of the south side.

We have our new phone system now and we are still learning all about it.  If for some reason, you get disconnected, please call us back because we probably hit the wrong button!  This too will pass.

We anticipate the end of April before being completely done so again, please bear with us as we try to conduct business in a friendly and professional manner with little inconvenience to you as possible.
