Ormsby House Renovation Photos – June, 2005

June saw the paint buckets come back out and scaffolding come flying down. At the beginning of the month there were still some grey walls out by the street, but that didn’t last long.

It started with painting the eaves over the bay windows.

Then they took down the scaffolding on the north wall and reopened the sidewalk that had been closed for a year and a half. A little scaffolding still remained in the back.

But then, before you knew it, the whole front was done. Except for those strange little alcoves where you can still see the cinder block.

It’s been a long time coming, and you can see where they’re still going to put up rock work, but finally the Ormsby House has its new face unveiled to the world.

Out in the back along Curry Street, the forgotten back wall is finally getting some attention. From the top down, as usual.

By the end of the month the northwest corner was mostly done, except for the loading bay under the overhang. But that’s easy stuff, that doesn’t need much scaffolding.

Now that the hotel and casino are almost all done, it’s time for them to start on the portecochere. Here they’ve put on the white paneling that makes up the first step.

The month closed out with a lot of progress, but still a long way to go. And so the remodel trudges on another month.

Looking good! But what’s next?
