Ready for final inspection at Pueblo House

January 14th, 2014 | Posted by Occupy The Roads in Pueblo | Pueblo House
We got ourselves ready for the final inspection on Pueblo House and that happens tomorrow. Joe and I worked on “that crazy wall” until 10 tonight.   It was a flurry of activity to have all the little things ready, but we did it.  Fingers crossed that all goes well with Regional Building Inspections and we can start on the Li’l stone house next.
So happy to report that Pueblo Electrics is going to help us out again with getting electric to the SH. One plus, is that the wiring and some plumbing exists in the SH which we didn’t have in PH so it’s in better shape, but still very needy.
It’s been a long time coming and it was only through the many volunteers that Pueblo House is now ready for programs.
We’re working with many of the local groups like Teen Pregnancy-Health Care, My Youth LInk and many others. The City Planning (Wade & Beritt) will be coming by for a visit this week too and we’ll discuss historical status for both buildings (since both are over 100 years old) which will hopefully provide us with funding ability.
To expedite the process with IRS, we’ve offered to separate part of the business (the houses) into OTR Foundation so that the 501c3 can move ahead. Apparently it’s the RV that is the issue…whose “V”? RV. If all goes well that will be finalized within a month. Things are really coming together and we’re feeling 2014 is going to be a fantastic year!
