Wednesday June 22 – We’ve continued to take steps of progress in our building project in the last number of weeks.
On May 14 we had a small crew go to Wallace Point Rd and finish most of the demo work that is required before the professionals take over. We were able to remove some unneeded plumbing, take down another small wall and cleanup outside. In the process we filled a couple 30 yard bins with waste and scrap metal.
On June 17 we heard back from the city of Peterborough regarding our site plan application. There were many comments that we need to address and Mark Hicks, our architect, is leading the charge to address these items as soon as possible so we can re-submit to the city. It’s a much longer process than anyone anticipated but, as we’re learning, it is part of the process.
Here’s an updated site plan and floor plan for the new building. Lots happening behind the scenes!
Saturday, Nov 27th – we had a large crew of volunteers at the building. 70ft of old wall was removed on the road side of the property. A new 2×6 wall was installed, along with new windows donated by FCI windows. We removed garbage and a bunch of the old radiators from the building. Thanks to everyone who gave their time, tools, and expertise to help move this project forward. See pics below.
Through the months of August and September we have had volunteer crews working away at the site to remove ceilings, walls, and other demolition projects. See photo gallery below.
More volunteer opportunities will be coming soon.
There are a number of projects we will tackle in the coming months as we await the site plan approval and construction permits
- Restoring the original schoolhouse interior
- Installation of windows
- Data and video wiring
- Framing and additional demolition.
- Tree and bush removal
