Good news for the Maximilian residents! Willie says the ductwork noise will probably end in a day or two, tops.

“What do you think?” Kate frowned at the half wall by the gaping hole in the back which will eventually be the service door. “The width is wrong and will eat into the black box space.

“It will have to come out,” said Willie nudging the wall with his foot. I am still trying to picture this ramp to the door.

Thinking about soundproofing options for the conference room & the offices as well as options to enclose the ceiling.

We have decided to keep one of our artist-in-residence spaces open with the potential to put up walls in the future. It sits midpoint in the space and can function as another gathering space for people. Me, personally, I like the openness and the break it provides people moving from one end to the other.

“Look, I got this whole thing together with this piece to stick to the window,” Gianna maneuvered the pesky little pieces into place. “Madonna! I left that new SIM card in the restaurant.”

The hole in the wall is still there, pending a further discussion about the ramp.

There is a pile of cinder blocks where our black box theatre is supposed to be.

We’ll be back in a few days for a site visit with one of our funders who will be giving us money for theatre lighting.

“Oh, and I’ll coordinate with the boom truck guys to get the condensers on the roof,” Angela looked up from her notebook with a grin. “I like saying boom truck.”
