November 26

We have been very lucky with the nice weather this past week. The pavers are being installed for the walkway between the entrance and the parking lot. The outside dog play yards are now complete, the dogs sure are going to enjoy them. We now have heat in most of the building and the fire alarm is being installed. The tile in the lobby is scheduled to be installed this coming week and once that is done the glass fronts for the cat adoption condos can be installed. After a finish coat of paint the lobby will be completed.

I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving and I wish you the best during this holiday season.

November 17

The final shipment of the cat kennels have been delivered and installed in the cat isolation. The the first shipment from Mason kennels will be shipped next Wednesday, it will include all the 12 foot kennels and doors and the 4 foot kennel walls, but the stainless steel kennel fronts/doors won't be shipped until the middle of December. The prepping of the concrete walls in the dog rooms are almost done, then they should be able to start the epoxy walls. All the walls and the floors need to be done before we can install the kennels.

The ceilings are going up and we even have lights in the lobby area. The tile in the lobby will start next week. Needless to say its all coming together and looking great!!

November 14

Well it looks like we will be in by the last week of December! Some of the highlights over the past week. They have completed installing the blocks for the dog runs and are now getting the walls ready for the epoxy in the dog areas. The Fiberglas doors have arrived from TX and they are now being installed. They needed to adjust the openings for the cat condos, that work should be completed by Thursday. The cabinets are being installed after the Fiberglas wall coverings(FRP) are glued to the walls. Most of the interior walls/doors are painted, no one can say they aren't cheerful colors :-) The pavers have been delivered and now we are just waiting for the imprinted ones to be delivered, they should be in the first week of December. The only painting to be completed outside is the lower trim, keep thinking temperatures over 40 and no rain!

Most of the planting has been done, Donna and I had help from two volunteers, thank you! I wonder if they will volunteer when we need to weed?

We are thinking about having our grand opening on New Years eve, so please keep the day open. Don't worry we won't be open late, the animals like to get to bed early!

November 2 Update

Well, needless to say we didn't do any planting today, put we will be there at 9am tomorrow morning. The masons starting to put down the base for the partitions in the dog runs, they should have that done in about 4-5 days. I have been told that the Fiberglas doors and frames have been shipped and should be here next week. Right now we only have the metal frames up in the non animal rooms. Anywhere there will be animals and moisture we are installing Fiberglas doors and frames, no rusting or rot and they last forever. The painting was moved inside today due to the weather, we even have some color, it seems like it has been so long ago that we spent 5 hours choosing colors.

Have a great weekend and I'll get you an update the beginning of the week.
