Status of Emmett House as of October 2, 2008
Phase One of the project is complete as of August 2008. Phase One involved the relocation of the Emmett House from Ralston Avenue to its new location at 1000 O’Neil and construction of the new foundation and pony walls.
The project needs to obtain final design review for the interior and exterior of the building, as well as landscaping plans approval from the Planning Commission. This review is scheduled for October 2008. Once the Planning Commission approvals have been granted the final construction documents can be prepared and the project will then go out to bid. We anticipate construction to begin on the remaining parts of the house in the spring of 2009 and to be completed by February, 2010.
Status of Emmett House as of June 27, 2008
There has been a delay in setting the Emmett House on its permanent foundation while City staff, our contract architect and structural engineer, and contractor worked out details of certain structural elements of the Emmett House that were discovered as part of the move. The details have been worked out and the contractor will be back on site the week of July 14th. It is estimated the remaining foundation and structural work will be completed within 3 to 4 weeks after the contractor resumes work. This will complete the initial contract for the Emmett House.
The protection for the trees on the project site has been put in place and a protective mulch has been placed round the roots of the trees.
The overall Emmett House project still has additional Planning Commission actions that need to be taken prior to the final remodel plans can be developed. The plans are to go out for contract and begin construction on the improvements in late Fall. The contractor will be able to work inside the house during the winter with plans on completing the project by Summer, 2009. The landscaping will be able to be installed during the Spring, 2009.
