The renovation project for the two third-floor bathrooms at the Monastery has been completed! We began fundraising for the project in September, 2017. By November we had raised enough funds to begin working on the third floor bathroom in the front of the building, where the Dhungseys sometimes stay when they visit, and which visiting Lamas use as a green room.
This work was finished just in time for H.E. Asanga Rinpoche’s visit on December 11, 2017. Our contractor, EDI Design LLC, installed a shower, a larger capacity hot water heater, plumbing, flooring, cabinets, and all fixtures including a new sink and toilet. A new coat of yellow paint added the final touch to a beautifully renovated room.
The next month, EDI Design LLC completed the second bathroom project in the monks’ quarters which included installing a new shower/tub, toilet, sink, cabinet, and flooring as well as painting the bathroom yellow. That room, too, became a marvelous make-over. The monks now have a modern, functioning bathroom.
We want to thank everyone who contributed toward helping us reach our $25,000 goal for the two-bathroom improvement project! We especially want to thank Judy Cole for referring EDI Design LLC to us.
Thank you everyone again for your awesome commitment to Sakya Monastery.
