Nighttime Update – Thursday, 9:30 p.m.

The new Lutz home is fully framed and looking amazing. It’s hard to believe that just a day and a half ago it didn’t exist, but thanks to the tireless efforts of Alure Home Improvements and hundreds of volunteers, the build is coming along great.

Looking down Ringneck Lane right now, you wouldn’t know its 9:30 at night.  Beneath a nearly full moon, dozens of volunteers continue to hammer, lift and transport to ensure the deadline is met. They still have a lot of work ahead of them.


Sal Ferro just left the scene for the first time in days—he’s going home for some much needed rest. He’s had two hours of sleep in as many nights. He told his crew to punish him if he comes back any time before 6 a.m.

So while Sal catches up on a few precious zzz’s, everyone will work through the night.

And while rain slowed down the build a few days ago, today’s downpour missed East Setauket. Seth Selesnow of Alure told me they prepared for rain but lucked out at the last minute. “We were scrambling to get a tarp on the roof and throwing windbreakers on,” he says. “Apparently it just missed us and we only got a drizzle.”
