Lots to report on after a two week absence. Two weeks ago we had a successful showing at the Juneau home show at Centennial Hall to display and discuss our project to the community and its supporters. A multitude of students participated for the two day weekend event. With regards to the home, all the siding and cedar corner boards are painted and ready for installation which should be just after Spring Break. The front porch roof is now freestanding thanks to the heavy lifting power of a boom truck setting 500lb footers and is awaiting shingles. The plumbers are finished up now after having installed all the drainage pipes, shower fixtures, and copper pipping to the home. Electricians should be on-site shortly after a meeting Monday to discuss schedules. Insulation and furring strips have now been applied to both the north and south gable ends with around 85% of the home now fitted for siding. Finally, Craig Mapes officially filed for retirement today after serving in the district for 20 years. We wish him luck in his future endeavors and thank him for his years of service to the Juneau school district.
