This photo was taken in July but here we are in September and Pickering House looks pretty much the same. That's because so much has to happen behind the scenes before renovation can start. We have been hard at work consulting with structural engineers and other experts to gather information and develop plans for the infrastructure of the planned inn. Sewer lines, utilities, site drainage and other practical matters take precedence before plans can move forward!
We had our first technical review with the Town on September 7th. Representatives from various town departments asked some great questions and we left the meeting with a clear sense of next steps before we aim for an appearance on the Planning Board agenda later this fall.
It may seem as if nothing much is happening, but nothing could be farther from the truth. We've been busy laying the foundation for a successful renovation!
