Oh, the work that still needs to be done before Stonewall Jackson's historic return in September.
"The carpets are going down, the light fixtures are going up and then they will start putting the bed frames up," says Stonewall GM Carol Simon.
Some rooms are already furnished in the historic wing of the hotel.
"Every single floor on the wing is different and that's very unique now a days," says Simon. "Normally, in today's hotel you just see the structure and all the rooms to be the same."
The rooms have also been the hotel's selling point for their bookings but one thing’s still missing, the workers!
"We don't have the staff yet to serve them," laughs Simon. "But our goal is to keep on selling so that when we do have the staff they have plenty of work to do."
And Simon expects to be pretty busy when the Stonewall re-opens its doors in just five weeks.
"We are expecting a very big night the first night and even if all of our rooms aren't done, we'll still open."
