Rehab work on the Baltimore Kickers NEW clubhouse at 4810 Gunther Avenue has started
Estimated time until completion is the end of July!
Since our last newsletter a lot of work has been completed on Gunther Avenue.
Once we received our demo permit the entire interior of the building was gutted and the debris removed, but as you all know once you start opening things up you run the risk of running into delays and having to meet the latest codes and requirements. This combined with the City’s delays, due to the unrest downtown, has unfortunately pushed our completion date back until the end of July. This is, however, not an issue since we have no events scheduled for the month of July.
To date the most visible improvement is the “fachwerk” (timber framing) on the exterior of the building, the Baltimore Kickers sign and the new posts and chain for our driveway. The sign and chain were approved by the Board of Directors, designed and totally paid for by club member Josh Beatty, and is in the process of being installed as you receive your newsletters.
Other improvements include brand new shatter proof windows which we can open to let air in, the removal of all underbrush on the one side of the building, the removal of the wire enclosed area, the installation of a new exterior steel door to what is now a covered patio and a new access door for our HVAC system that is a code requirement. Inside we have all new framing; a new doorway to what will be our commercial grade kitchen and new reinforced ceiling framing to support the HVAC system. In addition the entire exterior of the building has been painted.
We have settled on a lawn cutting company, who have already been there a number of times this year, a new security system and monitoring company and the Board of Directors unanimously voted to fund a brand new entertainment system to include a new receiver and speakers to go with our new home.
