After the extensive demolition of the monastery, the renovation seems to be going smoothly. The contractor says that we should still be ready for a July 1, 2015 move in date. Within the next month, the monks will pick out their rooms based on seniority. I am still in favor of having some kind of warrior dash competition that requires monks to run once around the monastery building, climb a cargo net, swing on a rope over a pit, then in through the monastery front door, and up the stairs to choose their room. I bet we could raise some money if we opened it to spectators.
These pictures were taken yesterday.
