Summary of topics discussed:

  • Installation of a new metal roof this fall [approved at the owner's meeting on August 15th]

Darnell Boehm reported that three bids were received for installing the roof and Roofmasters Roofing of Hayes, KS was selected as the contractor.

    • A permit for the roof has been issued by the town.

    • The steel has been ordered and is expected by September 15th.
    • A crew will begin work next week to be ready when the steel arrives.
    • About three more weeks will be required to complete the project.
    • It was decided that any flattening of the slope of the chimney stacks will be postponed until the new siding is installed on the buildings next summer.

  • Payments for the preliminary architectural and engineering work have been made.

  • Renovation next summer

    • Darnell Boehm met with Charlie Story of Travis Construction on a number of topics regarding options for choosing an architect and supervising the renovation next summer. The Committee agreed that to assure good communications Darnell will be the official liason with Charlie .
    • He expects to select an Engineer to propose a plan for resolving water problems on building A and get him started soon.
    • A surveyor is ready to begin now that a contract with him has been signed.
    • Meetrings with prospective Architects are underway and we should be able to select one this month.
    • Baker-Hogan-Houx Architects is cooperating to aid our transition to the architectual firm we finally select.

  • Expansion of decks:

    • In the owners meeting on August 15th a limit of $5,000 per unit was set for expanding the decks of 13 units that might want them. Our best estimate of the cost considering the necessary construction requirements are more like $15,000 per unit. This topic will not be considered further by the Committee.

  • Renovation financing:

    • A bank in Breckenridge appears interested in financing the construction next summer. No decisions have been made thus far.

  • Skylights:

    • Some Owners of units on the third floor have expressed interest in adding skylights when the roof is installed. Darnell has responded to owners and it appears that the cost and other problems will cause this topic to be dropped from consideration.
    • The Committee agreed that a general statement should be written on how to handle requests from individual owners for construction work unique to their unit.

  • Hot Tub:

    • A number of alternatives on what to do about the hot tub - now and next summer - were discussed. Specific recommendations were not presented at the meeting.
    • A separate committee was appointed for the hot tub at the 2006 annual meeting.

  • General Discussion on the Renovation:

    • Topics included hallways, laundry rooms, proposed ski lockers, TV cables, water shutoff in Bldg B uniits, optional upgrades at the expense of each owner for bathrooms. doors, etc.
    • No specific recommendations made by the Committee.
