GREENE – Four months into the renovations of the Sherwood Hotel and the interior already exudes an unmistakable air of freshness as a result of Don and DJ Dunlap’s efforts to bring the landmark building into the 21st century.
Bringing their extensive renovation skills to bear, the father and son owners have already completely refurbished segments of the building.
“Progress is right on schedule,” said Don, adding that Feb. 20 will represent the four-month anniversary of their acquisition. The two are also currently juggling the renovations with their day jobs as plumber and electrician, managing to find time to work on the Sherwood in the evenings and on weekends.
Work on the main floor has already come a long way and gone is the dreary ambience of the Sherwood’s main floor. Most of the walls have been repainted, replacing drab wallpaper with a lively hue of maroon. Work on the main floor’s ceilings has also been completed and the lighting has been replaced with bright new LED illuminations, rustic-themed fixtures bracketing the walls, and hanging chandeliers, which while manufactured in this millennium feature a nod in design to the Sherwood’s seniority.
