The list on this page outlines all the details we have planned for this project. The list itself will change as reality kicks in and the cost and time get taken into consideration. As each step is being tackled, it will become it's own documented sub-section so you can follow along with our progress.

Some items on this list may change or be cancelled altogether over time. In those cases, the list item will have a line drawn through it. If the item is being replaced, it's replacement will be listed in green.
