Church Building Project Update 6/11/2019
There have been a few changes to the scope of the work due to unforeseen needs or hidden issues. For example, we are adding a child-size toilet and vanity in the toddler room for help with those “potty-training” needs when there are only a couple of adult workers. Additionally, the windows in the wall facing the portables are being reduced in size and number due to diagonal steel structural cables that were behind the framed sheetrock walls in those rooms. This is part of the fun of remodeling! We are also victims of the trade tariffs with China and the steel beams and posts we need for the fellowship hall ceiling and wall framing are delayed in their delivery. This, however, shall be resolved soon. I will keep our church family updated as significant or noticeable change takes place.
