The living room inside the Lambda facility.
Because I work for the Kappa Alpha Theta Fraternity Housing Corporation, I have seen the outside of practically all of the buildings associated with Kappa Alpha Theta. I've even seen photos of the insides of some of the houses that we've renovated, but I had never seen the entire interior of a chapter house. I was lucky enough to be asked to do inventory recently on our newest renovation - the Lambda chapter house, which is located on the University of Vermont campus in Burlington.

I had seen "before" photos of this house, and the difference is spectacular. Not only is the campus amazing, but our FHC interior designers, Karen Ledbetter and Arlene Wright Vanderlinde, did a wonderful job bringing out the spirit of the house. The house was built in 1910, and it has such beautiful quirks. My favorites, showcased in the photo of the living room, are the built-in bookshelves. I envy the members who will get to sit in that room and read a book while the sun shines in through the fabulous new windows! The extra-large windows are another thing that I just love. They let the light in beautifully.

Karen and Arlene did a fantastic job of bringing out what is special about this older house while still modernizing it and making it a nice environment for the new members to eat, live, study, and enjoy their time as Theta sisters.
