Another week, and the work continues!
Upstairs. The carpet’s been removed….
And so has the drop ceiling!
Tip for the day: Probably NOT how a ceiling fan should be mounted…
Here’s the previous ceiling. How did those little square lights ever light up the whole library?
And past that, another ceiling?! The original, presumably. Who doesn’t need 3 ceilings?
Downstairs, the wall that had the bulletin board is gone!
Really opens the room up. Or, it will once they’re done.
Inside a wall in that room. We had no idea there were old plugs there! They must have been covered by the wall.
The vault’s almost completely gone now!
Children’s library sans carpeting. Looks like they at least scraped some of the wallpaper off, too.
Most people wouldn’t have seen this, but it’s our old boiler. Kept us warm (well, sometimes…) in the winter!
I think they’re still trying to figure out how to get it out of there.
Outside the building, they’ve also been digging to replace our sewage lines. Sorry plumbing fans, no pictures of that.
