The remainder of the parking lot is being prepared for asphalt. The curbing is complete except at a couple of places where the Masonry Contractor will deliver the masonry materials. The missing curbs will be filled in when heavy equipment is gone.
The green siding will be complete by Friday. Once the siding is complete a sprayed waterproof coating will be applied to the exterior walls before the brickwork is started. The contractor is presently installing wood blocking at the roof edges and openings for mechanical units on the roof. They will be installing wood blocking at the windows. The roof will be installed in the next few weeks. Demolition in the narthex and kitchen is proceeding and will be complete in another week. New steel columns and beams will be installed to support the narthex roof once the walls have been removed.
The new electrical transformer is in place. The gas company has installed the gas meter so we will have heat in the new building in the future. The electrician will be installing light pole bases in the parking lot.
The plumbing contractor is roughing in the interior plumbing and roof drains. The gas line to the new building will be installed from the new meter. The heating and air conditioning contractor will be installing the duct work below the roof line in the new Parish Hall.
We appreciate the cooperation we experienced in the parking lot and grass areas last Sunday. We had a large attendance at the 10:00 service and the parking went well. Thank you for your cooperation.
