June 29, 2012 - Priming Party July 2!

Hello to all of our former, current, and new Co-op families!

I wanted to give you an update on the renovation project! The house is being transformed -- and the contractor work is almost complete. They are still finishing up some electrical, plumbing, and carpentry, but we are on track to be completed with the main renovation in mid-July.

However, now the fun begins for us. We have committed to priming and painting the walls, new doors, new door frames, etc. My immediate need is to start priming some of the newly sheet-rocked rooms and door frames. My target is for the building to be completely painted and finished by July 31st, so we can start getting organized and moving August 1st!

I know it is a busy holiday week, but I am asking for volunteers to come help start the process this Monday night. I would like it to be a kids-free zone, in hopes that we can make some serious progress in a short amount of time. So, please rsvp if you or a friend or family member can help!

When: Monday, July 2nd
Where: our beautiful new house
What time: 6-8:30
Why: Because we love this place!!!
BRING: Rollers, pans, brushes (I'll have a few--and of course will have the primer. I will also have bottled water and watermelon for refreshment!)

Save some time between July 20th-31st. I will be emailing a July work schedule out this weekend with several opportunities for you to help. Hope you are enjoying a fantastic summer!! Stay cool!
