Update on House Renovation and Loan

Due to the support of Tennessee Zeta alumni, the House Corporation paid off the $30,000.00 renovation loan during October 2016. To date we have received 73 donations for a total of $37,200.

But the work has not stopped. We are in the process of replacing, adding and repairing most of the doors in the house. There is some other wood work that is being addressed as well. New SAE curtains were just installed that were donated anonymously by our friend (class of ’71), who also provided us with the Bunting Brothers painting.

The amount of additional work that we will undertake will depend on how much more we can raise. Among the work that needs to be done is the following:

  • We need to replace all the base boards throughout the house.
  • The wooden deck needs to be treated to protect from moisture that will cause rotting.
  • The roof needs some work and could end up being a large expense down the road.

We are, needless to say, still accepting donations! Also, we are continuing to solicit donations from alumni we have not heard from, and have started making personal calls. Any help would be greatly appreciatd. Please remit donations to:
