Can you Smell what the Dekes are Cooking?

The Alumni are adding a much needed project to the list of the 21st century Deke House renovations.  The next big room to renovate is ... the kitchen! We have just received an estimate on the work from our trusty contractor and now have some blueprints for the new look.

We will hope to tackle some of the demolition work during the Habitat for Inhumanity weekend on June 6th and 7th.  If there is one thing we are good at, it is demo.

Below is a list of all the work items that are to be done for the full kitchen renovation. Looks like there is a lot of work to be done:

Remove plaster

Remove sub floor

Rearrange plumbing and electrical to code and for new kitchen layout

Provide new recessed lighting

Relocate and swap heat radiators

Install plastic on soil to control moisture
