II. Narrative Section 
1. Project Description: The siding on the workshop & storage buildings is very weathered and warped. This project would provide funding to replace siding and repair damage to any structural issues. Included in the cost would be calking of windows, flashing, fixtures, and all other penetrations. This project or a portion thereof was previously recommended in the Facility Condition Analysis dated 3/21/01. It has been amended accordingly to reflect conditions observed during the most recent survey date 11/04/09. Other minor repairs to include: The windows in the museum that are original, single pane construction in a wooden frame. These older windows are drafty and some have cracks, not energy efficient and the wooden frames have deteriorated significantly. This project recommends replacing the windows with duel pane, higher efficiency units. This estimate is for the replication of 17 units including wooden frames to maintain the historic character of the building. Removal and disposal of the existing windows is included in this estimate. Due to the historical nature of the facility , this project is subject to review and approval from the State Historical Preservation Office. The sink in the workroom does not drain properly and has been taken out of service. It is believed that the drain line was capped during the last addition on the east side of the building and was not reattached after construction. This project would provide for a licensed plumber to repair the drain line and bring the sink back into service.
2. Project Justification: It is important to maintain the integrity of these structures, including their finish and weather resistance. The buildings are continuing to deteriorate and this project needs to be done to prevent any further damage. The windows in the museum are in very poor condition. They are drafty and with a small amount of wind they allow drafts and movement that sets off the security alarm. Replacing these windows will also reduce our energy bill. On windy days you can hear the wind coming in the windows. The main building was constructed in 1935 and is a priceless artifact of the State of Nevada. The sink is located in the museum lab, a work area for exhibits. Without this sink exhibit preparation cleanup including, wet paint brushes and cans, must be carried to the other side of the museum to the kitchen or staff bathroom. This sink is important to the functioning of museum projects.
3. Project Background Information: The workshop and storage building was a project or a portion thereof and was previously recommended in the FCA dated 3/21/01. It has been amended accordingly to reflect conditions observed during the most recent survey date 11/04/09. The museum windows and sink have been requested in previous CIP projects.
4. Mechanical and/or Electrical Equipment Replacement Projects:
a. Type of equipment to be replaced:
b. Year existing equipment was installed:
c. Manufacturer of existing equipment:
d. Model of existing equipment:
e. Are there any known hazardous material abatement? Unknown
5. Ramifications if the Project is not Approved (short essay): If the siding is not replaced, it will continue to deteriorate and will no longer protect the walls of the buildings. The buildings will no longer protect the content they hold. If the museum's windows are not replaced, the cost of heating and cooling the building will continue to be high and the security of the building, that holds priceless artifacts, will be compromised. If the lab sink drain is not addressed, exhibit construction materials will continue being carried across the museum or outside and around the building to the sinks in the staff area at the front of the building. Besides being very inconvenient and time consuming, this can endanger the existing exhibits.
