Completion of Rectory Construction
The work is finished on the Rectory, and we're now just waiting on the surveyor to do a new plat before completing final inspection. The total cost of the project is about $160,000, which included the original scope of work of renovating the kitchen, closing off and sealing the basement door under the deck, filling in the stairwell, building a new egress window in the basement and rebuilding the deck and screened porch. The expanded scope of work after discovering all of the water and insect damage included tearing out and replacing the rotted dormer sheathing, window frames, door frames, downstairs bathroom floor, upstairs bathroom wall and radiator, roofing underlayment, fascia and band board. The structural repairs also necessitated replacing the doors, much of the roofing, all of the siding and gutters. A huge thanks to Bruce Stanley and his team at Authentic Construction for completing such high quality of work and within the original time frame, despite the expanded scope of the project. The good news is that the house is much more structurally sound than it has been in years. A slideshow of the construction journey is available below.
Many thanks to those who have already made a contribution to help defray the cost of these capital repairs.
Now that we have the structural work at the church and the Rectory largely completed, we can concentrate our attention on moving forward to the next chapter of our life together at St. Michael's!
