Ground was broken on the Fraternity House renovation on Friday, April 1st. It has been so long in coming that it almost seemed like an April Fools prank. The masonry permit was approved, along with the demolition permit, so Highland Developers, our contractor, went to the site to begin removing obstructions to allow the tuck pointing to begin. As you can see, all the ivy has been removed from the front of the House.

The interior demolition started today. The bedrooms on the third floor are the first to get torn up. The work will start at the top and go down floor by floor. It's not pretty right now, but it is the necessary first step to restoring our House to its original beauty. 

The demolition should be finished in about 2 weeks. During this time, the masonry work will proceed as well. The brickwork should be fully refurbished in two to three weeks, and then work on the roof will begin.

It's nice to imagine the House restored to pristine condition, but it's even better to consider the changes that will be made to improve the facility. One of the changes is already evident. There will be a door leading from the kitchen directly onto the back deck. This will help facilitate outdoor gatherings and meals.
It's hard not to get excited about what's happening to our Fraternity, but the work has only just begun. This is a momentous chapter in Chi Upsilons history, but it is also a challenging one. Our anonymous matching donor has just contributed his first $250,000, but we still have a ways to go before we meet the match. We need to raise another $400,000, and the work won't get finished if we don't have everyone's support. So, please help create another great era in our chapter by contributing to the Revitalize Chi Upsilon Campaign!

Good luck to the renovation process. Well, I guess it's already finished since it started a year ago. Sure, there are a lot of expenses you spent, but it will be all worth it once you see the beauty of your newly renovated place. I just hope to see some pictures of the new one here. I want to compare the "before and after." Thank you!
