Things are moving very quickly on our House renovation project. At the beginning of the week the third level was completely framed and and the second level was still getting sub-flooring and just beginning to get framed. As of Friday, both the third and second levels are 95% complete. Going through the walls of studs, you no longer need to imagine the potential of the House because you can see it. 

Here are some photos of the third floor.
Here are some of the second floor.
Next week, framing will begin on the first floor and the basement. Then, by the middle of next week at the latest, the mechanical will begin. The plumbing, electrical, and heating ducts will all be installed over the next several weeks. Although I'm sure there are some brothers who cannot imagine our Fraternity House without leaking pipes and paper insulated wiring, transporting the House into the 21st century is exciting.

On Tuesday, September 13th, several graduates and undergrads will be meeting with the neighbors of the co-op to the north of our House facilitated by the alderman. We hope to have a productive meeting to discuss the basement expansion. We will continue to press this project on in a timely manner and ensure that we get an exceptional finished product. We thank everyone for their continued support in our efforts to revitalize Chi Upsilon.
