Parents of kids entering the Cabbagetown campus of the Grant Park Cooperative Preschool gathered again this weekend to move from demolition into construction. Highlights for me – working with Dave to put up the beadboard in the entryway – and learning to use the nail gun. Good times. Gallery is here.
Parents of kids entering the Grant Park Cooperative Preschool’s new Cabbagetown facility this Fall gathered to gut much of the interior of the building in preparation for renovations through the next few months. Sam will be joining the ‘Cats’ group in just a few months for two days a week. Most enjoyable: knocking down the 2x4s with a mallet. Least fun: pulling up the linoleum flooring. But all in all, a good time for a good cause. I know I’ll be holding this labor over my son’s head in the future. Who knew tearing stuff down could be so much fun?
Sunday 6/4 Update: I’ve added images from day two of ‘demolition’, when we actually began construction activities, putting up drywall, spackling over the screws, and framing out the new doorway and walls for part of the improvements.
We’ve had a busy Saturday. First we were off to the Grant Park Cooperative Preschool’s organizational meeting for their new Cabbagetown campus where Sam will be headed this Fall. I’ll be on the communications/tech committee where I can
cause the most trouble apply my skills. Later, while Amy was at rehearsals for the Atlanta Opera‘s upcoming Tosca performances, Sam and I took a nice walk and were hanging on the porch. Amy came home, and Sam helped out with some pruning of the ivy, as you can see above. Click here for the full gallery.
