Seva Weekend at Maltby
Jan 28 & 29
Aum Amriteswaryai Namaha!
Residence Remodel is ON!
At the end of last year we announced that in 2017, once the construction permitting process is cleared, that the residence will be getting some much-needed face lifting. The residence was built a while back and needs some updating on electric, insulation, ducting, some structural shoring up and other punch-list items. We are pleased to announce that we've received clearance to begin the process of demolition.
To that end, we need a few hale and hearty souls to help with phase one which is the removal of the chimney and fireplaces. Bob is general contracting on this part and says that he'd like to schedule the demolition for the weekend of Jan 28 - 29, 9am - 4pm.
