Update on kitchen in Rick Holder Annex.
The plumbing pipes are installed in the trenches that were dug during the past several weeks, and the building inspector has given his ok. Now the concrete floor is being poured, and soon the contractor can begin to put up the walls. Then we can really see that progress is being made. REMEMBER....PATIENCE and PROGRESS are the key words !!! It will be worth the wait!
