New librarian Melissa’s new office

Since this is my first blog post with Special Collections, I thought it would be nice to show some progress pictures of the construction that Physical Plant has been doing on my new office.

The original work space and some bookshelves were moved so that we could get a better sense of the layout and floor plan.

Workers put up the frames for the wall very quickly right into the existing space.

Then it came time to add the sheet rock and insulation.

With the walls installed and the dark brown trim and old air vents removed, the electricians set to putting up brand new automatic timer lights. They’re nice and bright! You can also see where they’ve mudded over the nail holes and are getting ready to paint.


Next came the door.

Three coats of paint, and they were ready to install new base boarding along the foot of the wall. It’s looking fresh!

All finished! The furniture’s been taped out to make sure it fits, and soon I’ll get to hang my artwork and move in!
