Work is progressing on a wide variety of tasks, but the most dramatic are the paving work on our parking lot and the work to connect our building to the municipal sanitary system. Three lanes of South Military Highway have required closure during the hours of 10:00 PM to 5:00 AM while work was taking place in the street. Work will continue on other portions of the installation, but the work in Military Highway was the most challenging part.
Composite decking of the main entrance ramp has been completed, but the sloping brick path to its base still needs to be created. A large (used) commercial stove has been installed in the kitchen. Bamboo flooring is being laid on the sanctuary stage. Many doors (including the sanctuary doors) have been installed. Theatrical light fixtures for the stage have been hung.
Installation of sheet-rock and other patching on the third floor should be finished by the time you read this. Members and friends are being asked to help out with painting of the rooms on the third floor. See publicity elsewhere about plans for doing that painting or contact Judy Welp for information.
