I hope this finds you and yours healthy and well. I did want to give you an update on last month’s progress.
The work on the French Legation is progressing very slowly. Not a lot of headway has been made since my tour in May.
The project has been delayed by the modifications to the carriage house, as well as the Covid-19.
The carriage house addition will include a small kitchen for light lunches and drinks.
This addition will include three restrooms, a storage room, and a maintenance office. The plumbing has been stubbed up and is ready for the final foundation work and concrete.
Work has started on the new ADA stairway to the meeting area above the carriage house. The deck area on the east side of the carriage house is nearing completion.
The main visual progress on the Legation building itself is the addition of the new four pane windows and new shutters. The wooden stairs are being completed.
LBC is still hoping to hold our first tournament of 2020 at the Legation on Sunday, November 1. Hopefully, construction on the French Legation will be completed at that time, and also the Coronavirus will be under control.
So save the date, Sunday November 1, 2020 . Hopefully we have a tournament on the horizon.
