Councilwoman Kate Russell reported Tuesday that all of the new energy efficient windows have been installed at the McCauley Mountain chalet in time for the new ski season, and the improvement in the chalet’s interior warmth is significant.
Also helping is the removal of a roof that had been installed years ago temporarily, but never disassembled. Now the sun is able to shine through the windows, warming the interior, Russell said.
Additionally, interior walls were taken down to open the space inside the chalet for a better atmosphere, and to allow more people to enjoy the fireplace.
This is how the chalet was originally configured and utilized for many years before it was later sectioned off, Russell said.
Councilwoman Russell extended thanks to Steve Uzdavinis and his crew, and everyone who worked on the project, including Doug Clark of Old Forge Glass, who did the window installations.
“[Steve] really wanted to see this happen, and he made it happen. I can’t thank him enough for following through and doing such a great job,” she said.
