With a signed contract with Schalich Brothers Construction, Inc., the full scale renovation waits only for the final building permit. Check out the condition of the old clubhouse after haz mat removal including parts of the roof and the flooring, careful dismantling of the kitchen cabinets for use by others, and patient removal of the interior paneling. and the glass shelved trophy case in the corridor to the locker rooms.
The large stainless steel refrigerator will be reused and so will the paneling, which turned out to be redwood. Current plans are to use the redwood on the Legends Pavilion ceiling and as an accent above the fireplace. The Founders Room ceiling tiles will be removed (they are not asbestos), the underlying boards painted and the grand old beams preserved. The floor will be burnished, polished concrete in the main rooms. Much thanks to the management and determination of Steve Knox, with lots of help from Reinhard Ludke, and steady help just when needed from Jeff Schneider, and Matt Testa.
Steve has also completed replacement of the rear sewer lateral, correction of snack bar drainage, and earlier in the year, building a safe access to the pool for use during construction.
