Roofing progresses from removing old shingles, laying new plywood sheathing, rigid insulation, another layer of plywood, and a substrate for the new shingles. The entire building including the locker rooms will have new shingles in this Phase 1 (the funded project).
The open porch is converted to a sunny library began with new footings and a new concrete slab, and now has been framed with large windows across the front and on the side, as well as three wide passages into the Founders Room.
Many of the old white columns are preserved and reused, including as supports for the new covered entry access to the Legends Pavilion and the Founders Room, and the corridor access to the flex room and bathrooms, and inside the Library.
A new drainage / leach field is installed in the lawn area between the pool pump house and the pool. Care is being taken to preserve the honor brick circle and the stone medallion.

Framing the new flex room and entry to the bathrooms is done, and before you know, the roof and walls take shape. When finished, the roof will extend for a covered walkway access to the flex room and corridor to bathrooms. Folding glass doors on two sides of the Legends Pavilion are framed, and repair to the founders room roof is underway.

Matt Testa made an early morning run to haul away the last of the old playground, making ready for the site to be prepared for the CERT storage building and small site office. New footings are dug and poured for the new walls of the flex room. Architect Jessica Fairchild meets on site with General Contractor Jim Schalich, Schalich job superintendent Paul, and Steve Knox, volunteer site manager for the SHCF. Here, they are discussing plans for the floor of the corridor in front of the flex room. The future flex room is in the background. Footings have been poured for the new library window wall and rebar is ready for the concrete pour.
