Kirk Apartment Renovations 

(See images of the renovated Kirk Apartments below)

The South Carolina Home at Montreat Board of Trustees agreed to move forward with plans to fully renovate the Kirk Apartments. These renovations were a planned part of the “Raise the Roof” campaign. Monies pledged and donated to the campaign have been used to fund these renovations along with a loan through the PCUSA. Those who have made pledges to the campaign are encouraged to honor those pledges and help us finish paying for this first phase of what had been planned. The purpose of this project was to upgrade bathrooms where needed, improve all kitchens, and increase the energy efficiency of the entire facility, making it more economical to operate on a year round basis.  

The renovations included making the bathrooms in units 101 and 102 handicapped accessible and adding a basic food preparation area.  The 40 year old bathrooms in units 201 and 202 were completely renovated. All 4 upstairs units have new kitchen cabinets, fixtures, and appliances along with additional cabinet and counter food prep areas. Units 103 and 104 renovations include extended usable kitchen space by replacing closets with armoire cabinet units and adding a small island cabinet- counter unit.

All 8 units have new energy  efficient windows and the upper units have new patio doors that replaced the old sliding glass doors. While decreasing the single pane glass exposure we have updated the styling and kept plenty of view area to take in the mountain scenery. The original baseboard heat will function more efficiently on those colder evenings with all the added insulation. The new double hung windows and screens will help with cross ventilation on the warmer days. 

The exterior has been replaced with hardy plank lap siding. The scope of this project, along with having had the roof replaced within the last few years,  gives us a fully renewed facility. 

Contributions toward paying down the loan on this project  are greatly appreciated.
