Lydia's House Gains Occupancy Status

On February 4th we were granted occupancy from the City of Norwood, which means that officially our renovation is complete! Unofficially there is a quite a lot to do on the cleaning and furnishing and yard side of things, but let's celebrate this victory. Thanks especially to our tireless project manager, Ben Eilerman, who was over hanging trim until 10pm the night before, just to make sure everything looked good for the inspectors.
