|TONIGHT: As of 6 pm March 30, 2012|
If you have been following this blog, or our FaceBook posts, you will already know about the serious damages we sustained due to a water pipe break in our attic on February 27, when the equivalent of an Olympic-sized swimming pool-amount of water poured down through six floors into the basement, doing some horrific damage along the way.
I am happy to report that the Alcove on the Second Floor is nearly back to its original condition. Here are some "before" and "this afternoon" and "now" photos.
|BEFORE: On February 27, 2012|
|BEFORE: Firefighters trying to staunch the water which was going everywhere.|
|BEFORE: Water pouring off of the beam in the Alcove area.|
|BEFORE: A pond of water is not normal in this area of the Hawthorne Hotel, but it was there on February 27, 2012.|
|DURING: The water was so severe in this area that it split the corner of this wall open and gushed out.|
|THIS AFTERNOON: Today about 4 pm, the finish plasters working on the crown molding now that the walls have all been rebuilt.|
We are certainly open for business, and would love to see your smiling faces!
