Peel House Progress – October 24, 2020

Clearing the extra dirt for the future elevator. The dirt will be saved and used again for this project.
Packing the dirt for the elevator footings. Almost to the bottom!
This view shows how deep they’re digging.
This week they did more demo in the kitchen.
The upstairs bathroom that will soon become a coffee bar/lounge area.
Another view of the whole room.
This used to be the servants quarters when the home was first built. We used it as offices. Now, it will be the handicap accessible bathrooms!

Peel House Groundbreaking

As part of the Rekindle the Gift Campaign, watch as we break ground for the new elevator and for the renovation of historic “Mira de Flowers”, the 1905 home of William and Patty Jewett, part of First Lutheran’s campus since 1958.

Peel House Progress – October 17, 2020

Removing the old iron staircase to make room for the elevator.
Goodbye old sidewalk!
Trying to save what can be saved!
They found the old plaster and paint in the dining room.
How amazing is the safe in the kitchen?
Stove and hood are gone!
Goodbye kitchen walls. You can see the safe in the background.
This used to be Sunday School classrooms years ago and more recently storage. All the walls are now gone!
