Splash into Summer

We are making a splash this summer - with new paint COLOR on the exterior of the future NMF building!

These are some "Before" photos.

TA DA..... our newly painted building!!
The new colors are really making a splash in the heart of downtown.
Interior renovations are also noticeable.

There will be a lot of open space in our new building.
Third floor renovations have begun.
The windows facing 3rd Street have been removed. A nice breeze is keeping the crew cool! 

 We are so eager to keep you updated throughout our renovation process! Stay tuned to see what updates happen over the course of the next few weeks! Happy 4th of July safe!


Each week, the future site of NMF gradually reaches new heights! Work is moving along quickly and our excitment builds every time we step foot into the building.
If you look closely, you can see the half moons above each window. In earlier days there were canopies above each window, later removed the half moon shape became part of the facade. The building has now been resurfaced for NMF's plan - but you'll have to check the blog regularly to find out what we do!

When we said earlier, we are reaching new heights - we meant it! You can see from the bottom floor renovations are under way on the 3rd floor!
Future offices for NMF staff.

We will continually update you as the progress happens!

This area will be designated for reception and a training facility.

Bessler Electric feels the sun peeking in as they work on rewiring the building. 

The crew took time from lunch to smile for the camera!
