Ulin House is under renovation

Posted: March 19, 2014

JCHE is undergoing an extensive renovation of our first building. Ulin House, which opened in 1973, is getting a well-deserved, extensive overhaul and residents are excited about what's ahead.

The improvements begin with every apartment's front door. The XXXX doors will be replaced with a XXXXX solid wood door. The changes to the kitchen are dramatic. Residents will have solid cherry cabinets, clean laminate counters, improved lighting and full-size stoves. The fully renovated bathrooms include walk-in showers so there is no longer a need to take a big step into the bathtub.  Residents will have the highly-desirable ability to regulate their unit's heat and air conditioning. Lovely new carpets ...large replacement windows...the improvements continue!

Like any renovation, the Ulin project poses challenges. Every apartment needs to be vacated and cleared out before construction can take place. The resourceful Relocation Team is assisting each resident as he/she moves into a temporary apartment until a renovated one is completed. The relocation is happening carefully and thoughtfully floor by floor so that neighbors will remain together to minimize the change. 

It is anticipated that the complete Ulin renovation -- including XXX units, the lobby area, the common area and the administrative offices -- will take 2 1/2 years. We look forward to periodically posting updates as the improvements unfold.
