Odds and Ends at Extreme Mount Washington

2013-11-05 14:21:02.000 – Will Broussard,  Outreach Coordinator


It has been a busy week atop Mount Washington, with Appalachian Mountain Club Construction Crew members and electricians working alongside scientists from the Cold Region Research and Engineering Lab. Inside the space that will soon become Extreme Mount Washington, our work continues as we look forward to putting an almost complete project to bed for winter ahead of the final install.

Last week our work was focused on electrification, with this week’s focus being slatwall. Adorning the shared wall between our new retail storage space and the State Park boiler room is a brand new 200 amp breaker panel. Exhibit partition walls, drywall, and ceiling finishes are finished. Painting continues throughout the new space. Later this week we expect the carpet measurements to be complete. As always, images of the process may be viewed on our Renovation Photos page.

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
