The House is coming to life. It is not quite there yet, but as you can see from the pictures, the rooms look like real living spaces.
Here is the room that was once part of the Pig Pen, at the southwest corner of the second floor, although I'm sure it went by many names in its life. The walls have been put up and puttied, the wood floors have been installed, and soon the fine carpentry will begin. Other rooms on the second floor will soon follow its lead. Below is a picture of the large bathroom on the second floor, which will begin tiling soon.
As soon as the floors are laid on the second level, the third will begin. Below are some rooms on the third floor. In the distance in the second picture, you can see into the shared bathroom of the suite.
The basement floor is in the process of being dug out and will be relaid in the next few days. The floor will be perfectly level and even, and the basement will be fully finished soon enough. The days of mold and mushrooms in the basement are well behind us.
It is amazing to see the progress that has been made, and we plan to have advanced even further in the next week. We have been grateful for all the support that brothers have given. However, we still have a costs that we need to meet, and everyone's support is crucial to make this project a success. Please, if you have not yet donated, now is the time we need your help most. The undergrads are counting on you, their brothers, to help provide a good, safe Chapter House where they can begin to Revitalize Chi Upsilon. 
 
 
Things have been progressing quite nicely at the Fiji House. We have passed the inspections for both the electrical and plumbing, and we will soon be ready to start closing up the walls. And the duct work is complete and just waiting for the inspectors to come. The days of sparking outlets, dripping ceilings, and freezing cold rooms are long gone!
On Friday, as soon as the inspections had passed, the insulation was sprayed in the walls. This will ensure that the rooms stay warm, the noise stays in, and the costs stay low. 
The windows are all finally fitted and installed, and the exterior linings will soon be competed. The exterior of the building is on its way to looking young again, and once the doors are finished being installed, it will look beautiful once again.
A mailing was recently sent to all the brothers, and we hope that everyone received it. If you did not get it, the gist of the message was this: the project is moving, but we still have not finished fundraising, and we need your help. It is up to all of our brothers to help complete this project. So, if you have yet to give, please do now. We are counting on you!
