Latest News on the Little Chute Lock House
Posted by candice on March 4th, 2015
Terry Laib – our fearless restoration leader – and I met with Dave Maves of Rebuilding Together today. They are looking at 50 – 70 people coming to work on the lock house on May 9th!! Can you believe that!! They hope to be able to pretty much finish the house that day! This is an unbelievable gift, but one that needs a lot of planning to prepare to accept.
We need to:Finish getting all the windows and doors installedDo the blow pre-test for Focus on EnergyHave insulation put in the atticReattach the radiators Fix the broken pipeStart up the boilerHave the insulation put in the wallsRepair the plaster throughout the entire houseStrip the woodwork around the interior room openingsDecide on exterior landscaping
All before May 9th.
Your generous donations, combined with the Focus on Energy grant and the We Energies Foundation grant that we received makes it possible for us to insulate the entire house! The Boldt Company has graciously agreed to donate part of the cost of plastering the house! And so, we are good to go to start this chain of events moving down the river. And moving we will. This Friday, March 6th, we will be putting in the doors and windows. Step 1. I will keep you informed – we are getting close now!!
We will need the most help stripping the woodwork – so please think about helping with that in the coming month. Thank you!!!!!
