Work is proceeding well on the Manor House despite having encountered some unexpected as well as expected issues during the deconstruction phase. Structural issues were found with the existing roof structure and will require the addition of 3 large support beams to adequately reinforce same.
All asbestos and other hazardous materials have been removed from the complete top floor, the main floor kitchen area and the basement. The upper floor has been stripped to bare framing and a structural assessment has been completed.
The floor plan for both the upstairs caretaker’s suite and the main floor kitchen/meeting room area have been redesigned as required to accommodate the existing structural walls. The staircase to the upper floor has been replaced as the existing one didn’t meet the building code.
Work is expected to continue throughout April and May on the reconstruction of the meeting room space and the caretaker’s suite.
