Update on the Library

You’ll notice some big changes to the exterior of our library this month. The new exterior siding is already up on the back of the building and will be installed on the north-facing side this week. The thin brick façade for the NW corner and along the west side of the library (facing the post office) will be installed later this month. Once all the exterior surfaces are up, the canopies will be installed.

Nearly all of the exterior windows are now in. The main entrance has two special “store front” windows that have yet to be installed. They are now in transit and should be installed by the end of the month.

Just as the outside of the library is undergoing a remarkable transformation, the inside the building is looking more and more finished. The painting is complete. Lights are being installed. Cabinets will be installed later this month. The tile work in the bathrooms is nearly complete. After the tile work, vinyl flooring will be installed. The main floor carpeting will be one of the last items to be installed.

Throughout this project, Union Corner Construction has kept the work site safe, uncluttered, tidy. The floors are clean, raw materials are neatly stacked, and remnant materials are removed to the adjacent storage area. Anyone who has experience with construction projects knows how rare and wonderful a neat work site is. It’s a real pleasure for people coming in to inspect (or report on) the progress. Thanks guys!
