COTTAGES ALL IN A ROW

Camp Quixote residents tour the eastern row of cottages at Quixote Village

The cottages of Quixote Village are taking shape!  All but one or two are framed in, many have their windows, and some are being wired and plumbed already!  We are still on track for occupancy in mid to late December, despite the weather’s best efforts to slow us down!

Cottages along the west side of the Village.

Panza Board members are off pricing furniture and appliances, Miriam is plumbing her volunteer lists for help in painting the interior of the Community Building and the cottages, and a group from the Olympia Unitarian Universalist Congregation has embarked on a project to make about 100 curtains!

The Quixote Village Community Building awaits siding and roofing.  The interior walls have been framed in, and some fixtures are already in place.

Join us in this joyous creation!  We need volunteers to paint, install landscaping, and help the residents move from their present location at Westminster Presbyterian on Boulevard Road.  If you can help, call Miriam at 360 584-9804.  Don’t have time?  Then hit the “Donate Now” button to the right and help us with some unforeseen last-minute expenses. Just think how it would feel to be able to say, “I helped build that!”

 

Quixote Village Grows Despite Rainfall

We’re Growing Cottages!

Quixote Village last week, with an unplanned swimming pool.

Did you notice it rained last month?  Nine plus inches in September.  Enough!

Interior of a Quixote Village Cottage

Our schedule for site excavation–mainly the stormwater ponds–has been seriously delayed.   But there has been a silver lining.  We’ve started growing cottages!

There will be 30 of them altogether, 155 square feet, plus a front porch, and they’ll come furnished with a bed with drawers below, a desk/table and a chair (and a toilet and sink, of course).

Cottages going up on the east side of the site.

Drop by the site and check out the progress–and bring a bucket to help us get rid of  the excess moisture!
