This is for all the alumni and others that want to see the finished Alden building. John McLaughlin will be your tour guide in the following video. Check it out!
After beginning renovation in 2009, Alden Hall is now completely finished. The commercial kitchen is fully functional, the alarm systems have been implemented, the wiring has been diligently finalized, and the front door has been installed. The chapter also recently obtained the certificate of occupancy which ensures the legality of brothers living in Alden in the present and future. Renovating Alden started with the crazy ideas of a few brothers. These brothers have guaranteed an increase in unity and brotherhood within the Iota Delta chapter for many years to come. This is a proud moment in the chapter’s history; thanks and appreciation go to all the brothers, alumni, and others who helped make this endeavor possible.
The Alden Renovation is still underway. Carpet has been installed, doors to rooms are in, and almost all the wiring is done. We will be holding our first chapter meeting in the new Alden Chapter Room tonight at 8pm as overseen by our two new suits of armor, Bob and Tom. The second floor showers developed a leak, so they have been torn apart to be redone.
Air Conditioning has now been installed in Alden. Wires have started to be run. Carpet has yet to be installed, but it appears that the steam tunnels are cleared.
More pictures are attached.
I apologize for the long delay in pictures. It was a busy end of the year, and no one was allowed in Alden for about a month. At this time, the tile has been laid, plumbing nearly done, carpet is about to go in, A/C is in, and the kitchen is nearly finished. I hope you enjoy these new pictures and let me know if you have any questions about how the project is proceeding.
Brother Tommy Bruner gives a video walk-through of the Alden building, which is currently under renovation.
The drywall is now up... take a look at the new pictures here...
The Alden Renovation is moving along quite smoothly, with a lot of work complete but still a lot to go. The residential rooms have all been framed out and insulation has been installed, with drywall expected very soon. Furnaces have been installed, and the building has been sealed by new windows with new doors expected shortly.
