Renovation Update: Episode 18

Hilary Bauer is the new onfield host for the Timber Rattlers.  She took over the tour guide duties for Renovation Update: Episode 18 while I was in Arizona for Spring Training.

The episode is below.

I did manage to get over there for a few pictures on Wednesday. Where to start….where to start???

Admit it. You knew this was where I would start.

Renovation Update: Episode 17

I just want to state that it was snowing when we shot the video and photos on Monday.  At the very moment that I write this post, it is not snowing.

A little news.  This is my final Renovation Update video.  I will be in Arizona from March 21 through March 26.  Hilary Bauer, the new onfield host for the Timber Rattlers, will be taking over for Episode 18 as we get closer and closer to completion of this project.

Some photos:

My favorite part of this picture is that piece just below the peak of the roof that is shaped like the Timber Rattler logo.

In the video this week, banquet facility, concessions, restrooms, suites, home radio booth, and ticket windows….not necessarily in that order.

Pictures first.  Video second.

And since this is where I’ll be spending the majority of my time, I will start with Home Radio:

The futon is going to go against the far wall.

As I mentioned on twitter: Yes, smart alecks, the windows will open.

The press box has been expanded, too:

Plenty of room!

This looks like the set for one of those old: I’m a Mac. I’m a PC commercials.

Yes. This photo was taken on a different day.  At least the Sun was out when I took this one.

See. The Sun does come out in Wisconsin!

We tried some different camera movements in this video!  Enjoy!

Renovation Update: Episode 15.5

I just happened to be over at the stadium today and I saw something wonderful that needed to be shared before we shot the next video update.

The tarp has been taken down from some of the upper level.

Renovation Update: Episode 15

Just like last week.  Pictures first.  Video second.

If you’ll indulge me, here is my new apartment…I mean, home radio booth.

This is the new bullpen area. Bullpen as in “area for office workers” not as in “place for pitchers to warm up before entering a game”.

If you look to the right when you are near the front of the stadium, you will see the new entrance to the front office.

Construction progress in ten photographs

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

The post to ring in 2013 is about the progress on the construction at Time Warner Cable Field at Fox Cities Stadium.

I have been taking a photo almost every day since October 30.  I started from the same spot and began moving forward at about 20 steps every week until I reached the chain link fence.  I have been zooming in slowly through the same spot in the fence since reaching the boundary.

These are not all of the pictures.  The plan is to use all of them for a time-lapse video as the project nears completion.

These will do for now.  As always, click the photo for a larger image.

UPDATE: Okay. Fixed. You may NOW click for a larger image.  The photo uploading changed as part of the template change.  Thanks to Tim for the heads up in the comments.

Regular posting will begin again on Monday.  Until then, stay safe and think Spring!
