The story

The Mold Issue of 2017

The Short Story is: In April 2017 we discovered that a pipe broke in the restroom area. This caused a buildup of humidity and the development of mold. We called for a plumber to fix the break and called for some help on the mold issue. Experts told us that the mold was very dangeous to health and needed extensive specialist remediation - replacing all drywall, .... The cost is higher than our meager finances provide. Insurance after long negotiation agreed to cover most of the direct costs.

Given the extensive required work we would like to revise the restroom area to better accommodate wheel chair bound people. We ask for your financial help to preserve this historic building into the modern era

April 2017

A pipe burst in a rest room. The area was sealed and the air cleaned.

We got expert advice and then an estimate for remediation.

This does not include:
Needed adjustments of the area & Utility room and other unforseen expenses.

All of the drywall had to be removed and later replaced. We undertook the removal before the insurance arrangements were resolved. 18 in progress
All new insulation. 25 insulation

The neighboring cows were the major life around during 2017 so far.

Nearly all (20+) events had to be canceled.
