Gregg Construction Update 2

Over the last three months, construction has progressed steadily alongside weather delays.  The concrete for the foundation walls and floor of the addition is complete.  The steel beams and decking for the galleries on the main floor have been erected. The concrete slab for the main floor of the addition was poured just a few days ago and almost all of the underground waterproofing for the whole building is complete.  In the next few months, we hope to see studs going up on the addition, electrical and HVAC work completed in the historic residence and the road in front of the museum begin to get a layer of asphalt.  Keep checking back for new updates!
