Flood stage is 9.5 feet, we hit that today. In 1997, water was at 10.72 feet, I can't even imagine what that will look like. The mountains just started melting two weeks ago and there's a lot of snow up there still. I'm glad our building is not by the river and I hope anyone who lives by the river makes it through this Spring without a lot of hassle.

We should have a roof by the end of this week and then it's time to restring the electrical, HVAC duct work and plumbing!
We've also been getting ready to submit our
application to the Historic Preservation Committee for a front facade improvement. The current facade has little to get excited about. The current window is not in proportion to the rest of the facade. The siding lacks character and it is kind of an eyesore. We can't wait to spruce it up!
Below pictures of the current facade and also a picture (I colored!) of what the facade will look like. Not all colors are true to scale, Crayola color pencils only have a certain spectrum of color. I should have bought the 128 pack of crayons!
