Description (English): 

Reconstruction work will start at the Estonian embassy in Washington, U.S., which will last for at least 18 months. The renovation has been expected for years as power, heating and cooling systems are all considered old and dangerous.

The house in mid-town Washington, D.C., was originally built in 1903 by a doctor as a personal residence, ETV's weekly current affairs show "Aktuaalne Kaamera. Nädal" reported on Sunday.

The building on the corner of Massachusetts and Florida has been used by the Estonian embassy since 1994, but the procurement was not an easy task and needed some convincing.
