We’ve been making good progress on the contractor front, with currently three contractors having provided us with their bids. We provided them with a detailed Statement of Work, which committee members Steve Stein and Tom Schultz put together to outline all of the necessary components of this renovation. It’s amazing how many parts there are to a kitchen – from the obvious elements, such as the installation of new cabinets, to the hidden, such as drain pipes for water and waste.
We will be comparing these bids to determine how they measure up to each other, as well as whether there are any elements that we have forgotten or can save money on. We want to get this perfect, and we think that selecting a contractor is perhaps one of the most important decisions in this renovation. If you have any suggestions as we try to pick our contractor, let us know!
Finally, we do have to note that we will of course need to have the funds available in order to move forward with this project. Thank you to all those that have contributed thus far and for those that have thought of contributing but have not had the opportunity to do so yet, now is the best time!
We also are looking forward to seeing as many of you as possible for celebrating our fraternity’s 110th anniversary in August – please RSVP to our Facebook event so we can plan the festivities!
