The demolition was complete and rebuilding began shortly after. That had to erect a wall after opening up my office space. and then construct a small office within the lab for microscopy and desk space.
The laboratory and office renovations have begun in earnest. Last week when I got back they had not even started moving things. However, by Monday, they had gutted both the office and the lab. They have removed the wall opening up my office into the larger space for the microscopy and sink area. This weekend they will be removing the asbestos laden floor materials.
Clearly behind schedule a bit, but it is moving forward, so excited to see it taking shape. More updates soon I hope!
