For Maria Guy, renovation of the old Hart Hotel at Washington Avenue and West Van Buren Street has meant "10-to 12-hour workdays" since the Church of Scientology bought the building, gutted it and started turning it into a church facility in 2002.

Guy, a petite woman and native of the Dominican Republic who moved to America in 1979, said she and a co-worker just finished installing 123 new windows in the building. The windows cost the church about $750,000.

Guy also helped remove asbestos, put down tar roofing in the hot summer heat, cleaned up mountains of trash and done anything asked to move the estimated $2 million project toward completion in 2006 or 2007.
