In December, 2002 the renovations for the Tompkins Funeral Home began. With some minor issues, mostly weather related, the project was kept on time and went with out any troubles. On April, 2003 the construction was completed and the NEWLY renovated Tompkins Funeral Home was completely open for service.
Chapel Taking Shape
The drywall, heating, and other interior projects came together quickly. Here they are working on the location of the cross in our chapel. You can also notice the temporary wall that is in place on the right side of the picture that is now covered by a moveable wall between a visitation room and the chapel.
With the stucco now on the chapel and the windows and doors in place the New Chapel is ready for use. All that remained was the paving.
With the chapel now open we can begin the final phase of our renovation... the front entranceway.
The New Entrance Way!
With the completion of the chapel, we were able to open that facility as our temporary front entranceway so that our contractors could begin the new entranceway. To complete this process they needed to extend our frontway 6 feet to make room for the new lobby and consultation/family room.
The Exterior Renovations are Completed
After 6 months of construction, the exterior renovations are now completed. Along with the exterior renovations that are pictured above, we also made many changes to the interior of our building. Please take a tour of our new lobby, family room, visitation rooms and the New Chapel.
