                     Volunteers cleanup the grounds on the south side of the building, concentrating on the area around the hatchway.  Leftover stones from the hatchway construction are removed and the area re-graded.  Also, sub-flooring is installed in the previous upstairs bathroom.  Work is started on installing computer and phone lines, taking advantage of the access to walls before plastering is done later in the year.
