Ormsby House Renovation Photos – August, 2004

Just a fast look this time at what they’re doing in the front of the building.

Here’s the big bay window in the front.

And here’s the northern bay window. This one actually looks like it’s going to be a doorway, while the other one is just a window.

The southern bay window gets studs and a decorative roofline. Looks like it’s ready for walls to go up.

The northern bay window looks like it’s going to be two stories tall, so it still has a bit of work to do.

At the end of the month they tore up the sidewalk along Carson Street. This gives them a little more room to maneuver equipment and materials around as they work on the front of the building.

It also makes taking closeup pictures a lot harder.

In overview, all the pieces are coming together. An article in the Reno Gazette Journal gives a status update, saying they hope to have it open within a year. But it also says the deadline keeps moving back, because the owners are “meticulous” and keep making changes to the design. As far as I’m concerned, that’s the exact right way to do it. Better to have an excellent product that’s delivered late than a so-so product that comes in on time. Quality always wins out over deadlines in my book.

More big stuff is sure to happen in September.
