Here is the latest on our renovation project(s)…Last night I met with Aulson Company. This is the company that will be removing the carpet and tile from the Recording Counter area. The biggest problem they seem to anticipate is moving the actual counter. This unit is “L” shaped and approximately 30 linear feet long and is very, very heavy. It is made up of modular units with two large tops attached… “Ah, there’s the rub” (to quote Shakespeare). In order to disassemble the modular units the tops have to be removed. Some of the screws holding the tops on are difficult, if not impossible, to get at. In the end the workers decided to lift the entire unit at once (all 30 feet) then move it about five feet into the main hallway. After the workers remove the floor and they will bring the counter back to its original location. There are electrical boxes and computer drops that need to be disconnected from the sides of the counter before it can be moved. The work will begin at 6:00PM Friday night and last until 2:00AM Saturday morning. The crew will get some sleep and be back at the registry by 11:00AM on Saturday morning. There is a good chance that work will still be going on Sunday as well.
This is our plan…We will move the Recording Counter into the “old record hall” by 12:00PM Thursday. We will use the rest of Thursday and Friday to remove the remaining furniture form the the Recording Counter area.
