The current stove was purchased in 1972. The existing dishwasher is in good condition. We spent $1500 repairing the existing 3-door commercial refrigerator last year so it will last another 5 years or more. The design for the renovation is underway (PDF). Key elements include a new 6-burner gas stove, new convection oven, stainless steel stove hood and exhaust system, a two-door reach-in freezer, new sinks, and plenty of storage area.
We have a new pictures gallery on the web site so that we can share the trove of pictures we have. You don't have to be logged in to view the pictures but you do if you want to add pictures. This is publicly accessible. Please keep it clean.

We have rot, we have bugs. Craig has been patching. He hopes to complete the work during 2018 which will include painting. It's been an expensive effort. Photos of the progress are attached.
The house inspection identified a few items that needed to be remedied. One was the cracked landing between the steps and the sidewalk at the Institute Road entrance. During the PTN meeting over the summer, it was decided that the landing would be replaced by bricks instead of concrete. The work commenced on 9/18/2017 and was completed on 9/20/2017.
