As a summer camp, you’d think that by December, things might be slowing down for us at Kettleby Valley. However, this fall has been particularly busy. We moved our office into the house at the front of the property and the projects have been non-stop. Prior to moving the office, people would just drive by the bus loop. Now that this area is the destination for visitors, cleaning it up and establishing parking became a priority.
We had to fix up the shop building and make it look presentable. A big barn door had to be built and hung and the contents in and around the building required organizing.
Gates had to be built and hung to direct people and deliveries to our new location. Cedar fences and other details defines where to (and where not to) drive and park.
We’ve built a kitchen for the basement so that Chex, our Outdoor Education Director has a new home. We cleared the brush from beside the road. We installed a flagpole at the new parking area. We built a new table for our meeting room.
Of course the new office required renovations to make it more like an office than a home. A wall was removed, rooms where painted, network cable was run and some dangerous electrical work was cleaned up.
And, while we were settling into our new office and trying to complete all the projects, our registration reached new heights. With all these projects happening, we can hardly wait to show the place off to everyone!
