At the January 18, 2018 General Membership meeting, Barbara Roche provided information on the scope and cost of the upcoming clubhouse kitchen renovation.
The Board of Trustees approved a not-to-exceed amount of $42,000. The actual cost is at $38,646.47. There is one open item to be included, and that is additional electrical outlets on one of the kitchen walls.
Our kitchen is a very large room, with the cabinets, appliances, etc. being 20 years old.
The renovation will be coordinated through Chuck Braun by Lowe’s who will act as the general contractor to get us the deliveries, the demolition work, plumbing work, electrical work, tile work, and any other items needed to realize the completion of all the work.
The actual renovation will include all appliances, cabinets, floor tiles, counter tops and island top, adding backsplash tiles, sinks and faucets, adding pantries in the refrigerator area to provide more space for storage of items such as coffee urns, there will be deeper rollout drawers to store larger items, fans will be replaced, and the room will be painted.
The warming oven will remain, however, a new ice making machine will have to be purchased as when it was moved to accommodate the renovation it was discovered that the bottom metal part was rusted out. This item is also 20 years old.
Thanks to Bob & Ellen Taylor, Sandy DeGrande, and Theresa D’Andria, who worked with Barbara and Dave Heskin on this project for our community.
