Things are progressing again in the museum renovations! We've got electricians and plumbers and painters, oh my!
The electrical stuff is getting done, but there's not much to see as it's mostly in the walls and ceiling. Painting started this afternoon, and I'll post photos once that is done. They will be starting with the ceiling and then moving on to all the walls upstairs and down. Once the ceiling is painted, Marshall Contracting will start taking down the Boxosaurus so that the floor it is attached to can get done.
The walls in the back room are getting drywalled and will be ready for painting later today:
New wall separating newTraveling Exhibit space from prep lab, with
office in the background.
They've also built the new wall that extends out from the end of the fluorescent minerals room, and closed off the minerals room, too. The future entrance to the glowing rocks room will be on the far right. The stegosaurus cast from upstairs will go on this wall, once the electrical box is moved to the back room!

We'll have more new pics once the painting is done in a couple of days!!
