Cleveland Depot Transformation Images

The following six photos display the depot transformation progress from October 10, 2010 through April 11, 2012. Each of these photos were taken at the same location showing the progress. It is truly amazing what Tricon Construction, Inc. has accomplished during the last 16+ months; they have been doing a superior job of bringing life back to this great Southern icon and must be commended for their work.

The following restoration photos were taken between 4/16/12 and 4/26/12. These photos focus mainly on the exterior and interior painting progress.

Three new doors are being installed — one on the east side, two on the west side of the depot. Two existing doors on the east side are also being reworked. A new wood roof support on the south side of the bay window is being fabricated to replace the old one that was rotten.

The following restoration photos were taken between 4/3/12 and 4/11/12. These photos focus mainly on the new roof installation. The depot, when originally constructed in 1910, supported a clay tile roof. Because of the age of the building and its structural integrity, a simulated terra cotta tile roof fabricated from aluminum had to be used. The appearance similarities between the simulated roofing and clay tile are nearly undetectable. The interior walls have all been prepared for painting. Work is now progressing on the installation of ceiling crown molding as well as wall tongue and groove wainscoting. The new floor has also been installed in the break room.
