he hounds will be much happier,” designer and project manager Leah Palmer told about 50 supporters of the Piedmont Fox Hounds who recently gathered around the construction site for the new $700,000 kennels. There was a little wine, a little cheese and a lot of oohing and aahing over what eventually will be a sparkling 2,500-square foot structure that will replace the original kennels, built in 1918. The walls and foundation are in place, and everyone in attendance was Graham Alcock encouraged to add their signatures to wooden trusses that soon will be installed. Work on the kennels began in mid-April, and all those happy hounds should be in their new digs by mid-October.
