We are busy making plans to renovate some bathrooms and to convert the smoking rooms to non smoking rooms because the Michigan Legislature pasted a no smoking law that will take effect on May 1, 2010. This involves all new carpeting,bedding and special cleaning of all furniture and walls to make the room fresh. It is a unique experience doing renovations in Mackinaw because in the metropolitan area I’m from, every possible item I would need for a renovation is at my fingertips. Not so up north. We will need to drive to Petoskey or Gaylord for supplies and I always hope I haven’t left anything off the “things to buy” list. Otherwise I will have to drive approximately 100 miles round trip to buy anything I have forgotten.
We are also hoping that the winter was kind to our building and that when the water is turned back on, no pipes will burst. That always brings a surprise renovation that we were not counting on.
Please keep your fingers crossed for us that all goes well. We will keep you informed.
