The Media Studio's entryway doors have officially been completed and installed. After weeks of careful work the old doors from the building have been completely refurbished and reinstalled side by side. They are made of redwood, with Cook pine panels and brass medallions from India.
With this step the building is finally closed up. Now the only major project keeping the Ganapti Kulam from moving in is the installation of the vinyl flooring, which will happen soon.
This renovation has been a long road, and there is lots more intricate woodwork to be done, but completion is not too far into the future.
