February 2017 Construction Update
Here we are half way through February and construction continues. We thought you’d like an update of what’s happened:
-Work continues on the sanctuary and narthex. One of the many things happening this week is that we’ve had people installing some beautiful hardwood flooring in the chancel (altar and pulpit) and choir areas. They’ve put the wood down and now are sanding and staining the floors.
-Pastor Dave, Pastor Russell, Suzie, Julie, and Martha will be moving back to a renovated administration wing February 21. A couple of notes related to that:
-If you have a meeting in the Administration Wing or need to stop by (we always love visitors), the only exterior door that will be open will be conference room door on the 1604 side of the church property. The Narthex is off limits until construction is completed.
-Pastor Russell and Suzie have switched offices. This is because Julie and Martha’s office will be moving once the Gazebo and new offices are completed later this spring.
-The Fire Marshall has not given us clearance to occupy the old nursery until construction is completed on the gazebo and new office spaces later this spring.
-Construction has re-started on the gazebo and new office spaces. I’ll have another post about this tomorrow, but this is a very good thing that happened and will help us as we move towards completing this building.
Finally, here are some pictures:
When you come to anything in the administration wing, please use this entrance until construction is over. The narthex doors will be locked because it is a construction zone and the gazebo area will also be under construction.
Notice the new tile and paint in the hallway. (Also notice that the doors that exit to the narthex have the “No Exit signs.”)
The restrooms have been renovated. We had to make some changes in the restrooms because of the Americans with Disabilities Act. When you walk into each restroom you’ll notice new tile on the floor, new sinks and counter tops, and new bathroom stall doors.
Here’s a picture of the conference room. You’ll notice the new carpet throughout the administration wing.
This is a picture of a stairwell next to the church office. You’ll notice we have new lighting and that the stairwells are now open to the narthex. We want to do what we can to let people know that we have a balcony that is available for seating.
Here’s a picture of the sanded floors for the chancel (altar and pulpit) and choir areas. They have yet to be stained.
Here’s a picture of the interior of the new organ console. If you go to the back of the Family Life Center, you’ll see the roll top down on it. But here’s what will be coming into our sanctuary later this year. We’ll have more information about the organ a little later in the year.
More to come tomorrow…
