Extreme Mount Washington at 7 weeks

Winter is certainly taking hold at the summit of Mount Washington, New Hampshire, where we are now 7 weeks into the demolition of the space that will become Extreme Mount Washington in the spring of 2014, some 6 months away.

Last week, 4 members of the Appalachian Mountain Club’s Construction Crew spent 4 days at the summit. Their work focused on taping, mudding, and sanding drywall, continued painting of walls and ceilings, and the installation of flatwall within the new gift shop area.

This week, the AMC crew will continue much of this work, along with the construction and installation of a door to the new storage space. This space is located below the redesigned stairway, which will be outfitted with a brand new railing this week. Our guests will be joined by an electrician to help install electrical conduits and run wiring for the new space. Images of the process can be seen online at our Renovation Photos page.

Next week we expect painting and slatwall to be completed. An additional electrician will join the crew for continued work installing electrical circuits/conduits, in addition to the installation of tracks for new track lighting.

As work begins we still have just over $26,000 left to raise on the project’s $825,000 budget. Help us bring this important project to completion by making a tax-deductible donation of any amount on ExtremeMountWashington.org.
