Phase I; Aug 1st Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:

Greetings,

Well we are still moving and shaking on the job site. Every hour there is something new to "WOW" over. The rest of the sidewalks are in and the light posts are being mounted. 165th sidewalk will be back up and operational on Monday for the neighbors use. The remaining area is still construction zone and not open, yet.

The flooring install is in full force today at the residence and drywall is almost 100% at Subacute. The time capsule location has been framed in and is awaiting the time capsule. With the sidewalks in place you can see in greater detail where all the landscaping will be going. The basketball hoop hasn't arrived yet but expecting it anytime. The first set of draperies are completed for the residence and the extra bedroom set has arrived, it is just waiting install. We have been lucky to get a donation of some office chairs from our insurance company for a couple of spots at Subacute and are working on acquiring other elements.

Coming up, expect to see:

Mudder's, tapers, and painters at Subacute Floor getting done and trim going in at the Residence Site work will be continuing, including landscaping Fencing around back yard at residence going in Tile & cabinet work starting at Residence Licensing Walk through at Residence on Thursday the 7th

Right this second we are hoping to have the residence complete prior to the 21st but it is looking like Subacute will take up to that time for 100% completion. But as I have said we are moving and shaking and things are changing by the hour, so we will see.

Existing parking plan remains in place for another week.

Any questions, issues, concerns please just let me know.

Phase I; Aug 10th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:

Greetings,

Sorry a bit late with this update but been busy getting this thing done.

If you were off or away for the weekend you probably didn't notice yet that the residence exterior is painted! We are ready for gutters and downspouts. Can't wait for you all to see the interior. The tile, flooring, and lighting are all coming together. Working on trim, interior windows, casework, and installing the technology. But my favorite element remains the front porch which is now in and looking fabulous with the house painted.

Subacute is receiving a coat of interior paint with lighting going up and flooring going down. Hoping to get the flooring started by end of week.

Prepare yourselves with us getting closer to completion these updates are getting shorter and a bit more boring, not that they ever were very exciting. We still have a couple weeks left which means a few more updates, just don't have your hopes up too high.

Any questions, issues, concerns please just let me know.

Phase I; Aug 18th Construction Update
A message to our neighbors from Pam Krecklow, Real Estate & Construction Manager, Albertina Kerr:

Greetings,

Yes, I am a bit late again, sorry but pulling all the moving pieces together here at the end is a lot to juggle. We are moving forward with both buildings and are so close.

The residence is getting the final touches on the exterior. The rest of the trim is getting its final coat of paint, the cabinets are being installed, the equipment is ready to be tested, and we are actually working on the punch list. Subacute is following closely behind, will be installing the flooring this week.

The "green" part of the landscaping has started on both buildings and by end of week it is going to look 100%. Amazing how fast it all goes here at the end.

We are still counting on being done by end of the month and will be really close.

Any questions, issues, concerns please just let me know.
