The north wall has been the last exterior wall to go up, but it’s been framed in and is getting closer to completion! Roofing should be starting this coming week.
Some very visible work got done today! Installation of the larger trusses that cover the sanctuary and fellowship areas has been delayed waiting on availability of a crane, but today that crane was on-site. The two pictures show the work getting started about 7:30 AM, and then the result of the day's work about 5:30 PM. Obviously, it was a very productive day! Praise the Lord!
Many of the smaller trusses have been assembled and lifted into place. Those pictured here are over the front of the building, facing south towards Holly St. The larger trusses will require a crane to lift into place, which Lord willing will be in the very near future.
The truss assembly, which must be done on the ground due to the warranty requirements of the product, has been proceeding. Once the trusses are assembled, the next step should be to raise them into position using a crane.
There is framing up for exterior walls on 3 sides, as well as some interior walls around classrooms, office, kitchen, and storage spaces. This picture is from the northwest corner, looking southeast across what will be the sanctuary.
The work on the exterior walls continues this week. The walls you see here will be part of the classrooms, kitchen area, and office. It's starting to resemble a real building!
The first of the walls began to go up today!
Tuesday morning, activity on the site picked up, as a work crew was all over the site pouring the concrete slab! That means that on Monday the 16th, the first framing should be going up.
The stem walls have now been insulated with the prep for the slab underway.
The stem walls have been poured and our storm drain plumbing installed. This week, the preparation begins for our slab!
