Renovations (Open)

Post by Dr. Alton De Haven on Sun Nov 30, 2014 12:05 am

A few hundred yards from the barn the lights of a farm house glow in the night. Pallets of building supplies sit in front of the porch. Everything from new shingles for the roof to fresh pipes for the basement. It's clear that the Etherite plans to completely update the aging home to accommodate his needs.

In the glow of halogen lamps he crouches by the door carefully unscrewing the hinge. A very mundane task. One that would be easily overlooked were he in his normal mix of khaki and denim. Instead he moves with a precise grace in a suit of steel. A dull grey exoskeleton wraps around him as he does his work, able to hold the door in place with one hand as he uses an electric drill.

Work that would normally take two men he seems to do with ease. The work progresses quickly.

Over the course of the month the renovations become more and more drastic. The house continues to look the same but metal plates and wood planks move inside. Re-wired and updated all modern amenities are represented with a few tradition luxuries.

A plush living room with a projector mounted on the ceiling for meetings or simple relaxation. A library filled with both occult and scientific journals ready to meet all mundane needs. A couple of bedrooms sit empty and ready to be occupied when needed (Sparsely furnished). A single bedroom is locked: A room Alton has claimed for himself.

The true effort has gone to more subterranean endeavors. The end of the driveway terminates in a downward slope into a hole. For a few days there are steel supports holding the earth in place. Supports are quickly replaced with a concrete structure leading down into the bedrock. Where once was camouflage netting is replaced with a large metal plate moved by hydraulic pistons, seeded dirt sit atop it ready to grow in spring.
