Kitchen Renovation Project – Bridge The Gap
For several years, we have been taking contributions for updating our kitchen facilities to meet recently imposed City of Ames building codes. We are finally ready to start this project when classes end in May.
We had originally estimated a lower amount, but in 2017 we learned we would need more extensive changes to accommodate the custom ventilation hood to be installed over the commercial range. In addition, some changes will be made to improve the workflow in the kitchen.
If you have been to the house recently, you will note the current kitchen can use some general improvements in appearance and lighting.
ATZ Corporation reviewed several options for renovations and has settled on a plan to update the kitchen this summer. You should have received a letter detailing the estimated amounts below. We need your help now to bridge the gap and secure funding for the project.
