The Chalet Renovation and Expansion

The renovation and expansion of the Chalet are much needed and overdue. The building is quite outdated and the layout is not conducive to how Youth Dynamics wants to use the space.

The vision for the overall project:

  1. a new entrance that will facilitate coverage from the weather elements as guests drive up and unload
  2. a large space for large groups (up to 62 people) to meet
  3. guest accommodations to sleep 62 guests
  4. a commercial kitchen just off the meeting room area

With this type of remodeling, the addition of fire protection is a must, as well as ADA accommodations, and new wiring just to mention a few changes. In addition, more bathrooms and an overall updated look and feel will be accomplished.
