Bath restoration

OK.  I’m back.  But really out of sync.

I found that the tiny hamlet of Bath, while possessing gracious people and oodles of history, is woefully lacking in the internet connection department.  After the first few days of unsuccessfully trolling for a wi-fi spot, I finally said to hell with it and resigned myself to the fact that I was just going to be out of pocket.

As a way of catching up, I’ll start with a promised update of what we were up to.

We completed 28 of the 152 windows in Bath High School and the town really got behind the effort.  We started with a real mess and ended up with new windows that just happen to be 80 years old.bath-after.jpg (Click to embiggen images)

My crew of six was treated like a bunch of rock stars the whole week and I bath-after-interior.JPGmust say that I am bath-before.jpgtempted to move to that part of the world.  At the very least, with the amount of business that will likely come from this ‘freebie’ project, I can foresee the expansion of my company to include a coastal division.

More later, but here’s a shot of the wing of the school we were able to complete…bath-facade.jpg

    Impressive! Both, the way the building looks with its new windows…and the effort made by you and the crew!

    Thanks for coming. Your work here in Bath inspired more work. We took Jinni’s list of three critical things to do and did all four of them. Including plaster, paint and floor sanding in the principal’s office. We just finished under the wire in time for the 1921-1989 Alumni Reunion. About 400 alumni toured the wing that got spruced up.
