Things are moving along at the house and it should only be a matter of weeks before the house is complete. It’s painting, painting, and more painting time. Take a look at the video and new photos to see how far we’ve come.The new videos are here.
Even with the snow flying, work never stops going on with the Second Chance House, as walls go up, closets, windows, and doors get worked on, and soon the bathroom work and painting will be done!
Don’t forget to check out the newest videos on the video page and updated photos as well.
The CTE Construction Management crew got some work done on the house, including outside siding and window work as well as moving inside with working on electrical and walls. Timing was great as the snow began to fly right after this. Our latest video shows you more of the work as the house progresses.
Our latest video update has been posted showing some of the progress made to date – please see this link to the video gallery. Photos of the crew at this link have also been added. We’ll be photographing and videotaping on Thursday, January 7th so we’re looking to post Video Episode 3 next week as well as some new photos. Stay tuned!
This new site is up and you can see the beginning of the project the Construction Management is working on.
Check out the Photos page for the collection of “before” photos as well as the Videos page for the introduction and new Episode 2 for the project. Both pages will be updated as changes occur to the house and the crew works at putting the house into shape for sale in the Spring.
You can meet and seee the crew of the two classes involved on the “About Us” page.
And feel free to send along a comment or two to support the project.
