Renovations to 700 Morgantown Ave
Working on the building has been just about the only thing we’ve done this summer. Almost every spare moment we’ve had has been spent demolishing, rebuilding, painting, designing, and the 1001 little tasks that come with making an old space beautiful and function. We didn’t do it alone, and we want to take a minute to thank the people who have worked alongside us.
We hired Harris Company Builders to take on the especially difficult or skilled work. They framed in the new rooms, hung the drywall, put down a nice strong and level subfloor, and tacked the puzzle of plumbing. I can’t recommend them highly enough. They did great work, within our budget. We also spent a considerable amount of time together and their team was polite and pleasant every day.
Chris’s dad (Chuck Moran) has been there from day one. Not only has he given us a mountain of valuable advice, but he has also been there working alongside us almost every day. Of special note: the baseboards that were in the space don’t really exist. We had sections of wall that were missing baseboard, and of course, the new walls needed baseboard. He cut new baseboards from 1×8 everywhere we needed it. He also built a soffit to hide the unsightly water line, and has perfectly mitered just about every corner of trim in the building.
We also had several friends and family members who popped in to help when they could. That means so much to us; for people to make time for us right in the middle of a busy summer season. Kristian, Stacey, Cecelia – thanks! Thanks also to Chris for loaning me her dolly/hand truck and saving my back from the many many boxes of flooring that I had to move all around, and to my mom, Debi, for gifting us a refrigerator.
I would love to stay in touch with you and keep you in the loop with renovations, news, and updates to our space. Sign up for the 304 Collective newsletter to be the first to know what’s happening!
