The original front door has returned to its rightful place set perfectly in the middle of our front porch. The lead-trimmed glasswork in and around the door is being restored to its historic state, and will be installed in the following months. Next up, the construction team will begin working on the back-parking area, driveway, and fencing, as weather permits.
Inside, the tile in the bathrooms is almost complete and features creamy white hexagon and subway tile on the floors and shower walls complemented by a light silvery gray grout. The interior trim has been installed, creating a beautiful depth to each room. A frame trim surrounds each window and door, adding to the rooms’ character, while coffered ceilings elevate the entryway, Social Detox Intake Office, and Family Visitation Room.
Another milestone completed this month is the installation of the elevator. We are so excited that our new home will be ADA compliant, allowing us to better serve alcoholic women with mobility impairments. Located between the dining room and community space, the elevator will help transport women from the second floor dorm rooms (and an ADA compliant dorm bathroom) to the first floor to participate in meetings, read in the study, or help prepare dinner in the kitchen (which is also fitted with an ADA compliant sink).
Next month, we’ll be featuring photos of painted walls and kitchen countertops – you won’t want to miss it!
