Willard is looking good...with so much more to come.
More notes from my tour of school construction projects last Friday...
The beginnings of Willard School's massive renovation are almost complete. If you're familiar with Willard, you'll recognize that the new floor looks pretty much exactly like the old floor -- except it's flat and level and not falling apart. What a pretty room this is, in such a beautiful old building!
Willard's roof is being replaced and the faux slate, which received the blessing of the Historic Preservation Commission, looks really good. (Click on the photo to enlarge.)
The asbestos abatement under the school was also completed, along with the installation of a trap door for easier access to the pipes, etc., located below.
Next summer Willard will really change, with the addition of the second floor over the kindergarten wing...
Welcome back to school, Willard!
