949 Bathrooms — Last year, we finally managed to get the sewers reconnected to the main building. Getting the 949 bathrooms back online has been a slow process, mainly due to lack of funds.
However, after recouping a little over $40,000 from a security system purchase that was never installed and a recent settlement with POSEC, the developer of the 909 project, that netted $115,000, we will do a modest remodel of the 949 bathrooms.
Earlier this summer, members Ken Hafner and Stanton Haugen tackled the heavy trellis in our main courtyard. Over the years, it had become infested with carpenter bees and was beginning to show signs of becoming unstable. Given the risk of injury, should any part of the 4 x 12 redwood beams fall on someone, the board opted to pay to have that removed. The cost would’ve been close to $3,500. Mahalo to Ken and Stanton who donated their time, talents, and efforts to solving this problem!
Mahalo also to new member John LeBlanc, who has spearheaded efforts to spruce up the building. John is a local guitarist with a real passion for making things better for local musicians. He recently put ceiling tiles into Studio 6 and has already made plans for new paint and flooring. He is also very tech-savvy and has agreed to help with sprucing up our website and social media presence.
