Work on Beech Ridge School is progressing. Pressure-treated sill plates have been installed for the brick masonry foundation façade, which has been completed. The masonry façade is in keeping with the original brick foundation in appearance and has much improved the stability of the building. All foundation work progressed smoothly. There has been some site cleanup—backfilling of utility trenches and some grading around the building. We are awaiting a proposal from our contractor for work to be done this autumn and will be moving forward with the work at hand. The building still needs to be “tightened up” for the winter.
