On the Vista property was a nice double-wide manufactured home that had been used by the families that provided care for the property before the donors turned it over to the Refuge last year. The home was no longer needed and the space can be put to other use as the property is developed as a visitor area.
Friends was able to arrange for the home to be purchased and moved to be used by a family in the area. The proceeds from the sale of the home will be used to help with the costs of developing Vista and restoring the buildings that will be saved for future use.
Work is proceeding. The condemned buildings are being removed. The old septic system has been pumped and inspected, the old concrete pads from the double-wide are being removed.
Work on the Cook's House is quickly moving from the architectural phase to the repair phase. The money from the caretaker home is a welcome infusion.
