Chesapeake Western Depot Project Update
We have been so fortunate this year to have so many incredible projects. However, the Chesapeake Western Depot in Harrisonburg may be my favorite. I had a chance to do historical research and get to know the building prior to construction. The building owners were gracious enough to let me be one of the building tenants once construction is complete (Harrisonburg Architect has a permanent home). Finally, it is always very fun to work on bringing an old building back to life – fun and difficult may be the same thing here.
Work continues and really ramped up this week. The framer is making the building whole again after many many years of water leaks and wood rot. It is still not completely safe to walk around, but it is getting there. The roofer is on site to make sure the water leaks are stopped and the skylights are delivered. We are still waiting on a few things to finish all the details, but when you are doing tax credit projects – you are not completely in control of the schedule.
Interior selections are coming around, we have done our preliminary selections for tile, lighting, and paint colors. I certainly like the direction we are going – what do you think?
