Now is your chance to have a bedroom in the chapter house named in your honor. Over the past five years, the Phi Phi House Corporation has begun to carefully renovate and restore all of the bedrooms at 3809 Locust Walk.

Based on a thorough prototype renovation of the traditional Consul's bedroom on the second floor, to date, we have accomplished the following:
• Replaced all bedroom windows with custom insulated units matching Philadelphia Historical Commission guidelines (summer 2009-10)
• Replaced all bedroom doors, frames, custom trim, and hardware (summer 2012)
• Restored fireplace mantles, hearths, and mirrors as needed (summer 2013-14)
• Repaired plaster and repainted all walls, ceiling, and trim (summer 2013-14)
• Repaired and restored all hardwood floors (summer 2014)
• Provided new area carpets and pads to protect the floors (summer 2014)

Moving ahead we will continue to upgrade finishes, window treatments and furniture.

A number of brothers have stepped up to financially support these investments and commemorate the improvements. The Board would like to acknowledge the commitment of the following brothers for their generous support and will be installing commemorative plaques on individual bedrooms in their honor:

Alvin V. Shoemaker '60
Paul K. Kelly '62
In honor of C. Leigh Faldi '60 - donated by Alvin V. Shoemaker '60 and Paul K. Kelly '62
Murray K. McComas '58
Charles V. Greene '10 and James H. Greene III '08
John H. Frazer, Jr '80 and Charles S. Baugh '81

We look forward to adding your name to one of the remaining bedrooms. The commitment is $25,000 and can be made in one contribution or spread over a few years.
