We are almost there. A few more weeks and our dream will be a reality. In my opinion, our contractor, A. L. Huber and Bill Draney, their superintendent, have done an outstanding job.
In the toilet rooms, fixtures, countertops and toilet partitions have been installed. All that remains are the mirrors to complete these areas. In the kitchen, the floors are finished and ceilings have been installed. All the walls are covered with FRP plastic wall coverings or stainless steel (which is behind the stoves) The sinks have been installed. The kitchen equipment should be delivered this week.
The Narthex floor has been leveled and is ready for carpet. The ceiling grid, lights and heating/air conditioning grills have been installed. Both entrances to the Narthex are complete. The wood trim has been installed and the walls are painted. The last things to finish in this area will be the ceiling tile and carpet.
The Sacristry is almost complete. The ceiling gird is complete and the walls have been painted. The cabinets should be installed next week. The doors and carpet will be the final finishes.
The Parish Hall floor has been polished and looks great. The ceiling grid is almost complete and light fixtures will be installed next week. The wood paneling is scheduled to arrive next week and will be put in place. The walls above the paneling have been painted. Wood doors for the entire project are scheduled to arrive next week.
The Plumbers, Electricians and Fire Protection Contractors are working throughout the project and should wind up their work in the next two weeks. The Painters are working throughout the building and will finish very soon. The last major work will be carpeting which should take place in the next few weeks.
On the exterior, the grading contractor has begun to final grade the site to get ready for the Landscaping and Lawn Sprinkler work. All sidewalks and curbs are complete. A wood gate will be installed on the dumpster enclosure in the near future. Plaster soffits at the top of the windows will be completed as the weather improves. The sheet metal coping and facia over the doors will be finished in the next few weeks. The mechanical screen on the Kitchen roof will be completed shortly. The brick on the kitchen wall will be the final touch. The brick is scheduled to be delivered around the first of the month.
