Construction continues. The stabilizing wall for the mural building on the left. The future visitor center on the right.
Our volunteers hard at work, putting together our upcoming membership mailing.
This week has been all about digging for drainage pipes between the two mill buildings. To realize how deep they are, the new drain stack is at ground level, so the crew (who look tiny!) will have to fill back to the top of that drain.
Inception of the farming section. This is one of three pieces that will make up the longest section of the mural (33')
The sky has never looked so beautiful, but maybe that’s because the roof is officially OFF!
“Before we can raise a roof, we have to remove one. And if we are saving all these beams, the work is harder for Scope Construction and all the demolition guys who have come on site to do the job. As I mention often, these are really skilled people doing a fantastic job with a very tough assignment. And they are moving fast. Here goes the roof!” ~ Ellen
Last Friday, students in grades 7-12 at the Gilbert School in Winsted created close to 50 tiles that will be part of AMP's atrium, featuring a collection of work tiles made by students from Connecticut schools. These students came in with some really ambitious ideas and pulled them off beautifully. Can’t wait to see what glazes they choose when we meet again in May.
