Spring Maintenance — and oh what a Spring it has been!
We are in the midst of refurbishing and remodeling some of our hot springs facilities. We started with lofty goals and have had to cut back on some of them until a later date. But here is an update about where we are:
Hot Mineral Water Outdoor Swimming Pool:
Our initial goal was to drain and repaint the pool while we were closed over the next couple of weeks. However, our plans have changed. We are now looking at completely resurfacing the pool instead, but, that will not take place this spring.
We took our pool down Wednesday, April 24th after the close of business and had “people” come to look at it to determine the amount of time that will be needed to perform the sand blasting and resurfacing. Weather is always a factor when doing anything to an outdoor facility. Because of this we will be tentatively looking for the next window of time when we could complete this work AND do it while the weather is nice. The last two weeks of August may be that time…stay posted!
Indoor Hot Springs Facilities:
We do understand that this building is old and that our mineral water adds an extra component to updating. We have heard some of the things that people want and we are trying to do the best we can to accommodate some of these things without breaking the bank.
This year we have mainly focused on the Men’s Indoor Bath House. There were things that needed to be fixed in the men’s steam room and we have been able to complete part of that now and are looking at doing the second part of it next spring. The other major renovation was opening up the doorways between rooms and into the bathroom & shower area. The showers have been renovated and a new sink has been put in. Hopefully, by opening up the doorways there will be better air flow so that the bathroom will stay warmer in the winter.
In the Women’s Indoor Bath House, basic upkeep, like painting, has been performed. Next year we plan on expanding the women’s area for additional cots, but this is a major plan and a lot of prep time is needed to save money to complete the project.
Nothing was done to the outdoor hot tub at this time. Later this fall we may perform some renovations to that area, but we will let you know.
That is about it for now. The photos above are of our renovations in progress — we will post more photos after the renovations are completed! Stay tuned!
