The keys were handed over to us on Dec 31st, and immediately a undergrads started moving into their new rooms.

I just posted pictures for Week 30-- sadly those are about 2 weeks old at this point. I keep meaning to get good pictures of the outside of the house, but last night (Jan 2), I got to the house too late and it was already too dark. I plan on getting down there Monday (Jan 5) afternoon.

There is still work left for Miller-Valentine to finish up-- mainly painting. But also, the landscaping, which won't be completed until Spring.

Alumni and undergrads are also have a list of things to do, including refinishing the library floor, building built-in cabinets, installing the network equipment.
