Lots of accomplishments this week, but no one will ever see your hard work! Lol
As you know we had to make several access points into the new attic space. Removing the original plywood ceiling and joists. Next we had to build stud walls to support 3 layers of fire rated drywall. Lots of measuring and cutting odd shape sizes of drywall to fit through the roof trusses. Much more work to do in the up coming weeks.
We saw so much progress this week as the foundation crew were hard at work building the walls to support the concrete floor.
No work was done by the site crew on the fire hydrant.
Plumbing supplies were delivered this week so the plumber can get started.
We spent early Thursday morning way before the sunrise searching the sky to see the space station fly over the church property. It was just a bright light and it passed over at exactly 6:22 am and was out of site within 5 minutes. We then spent some quality time together eating breakfast at the Honey Bee restaurant and introducing our Mission Builders to scrapple. I don’t think they will be stocking up on scrapple to take home!
On Saturday we worked on installing the rake trim boards that were cut with a rabbit cut that we will slide the siding behind.
We also had a little excitement while on the roof as we heard a car skidding out of control and landed very close to Steve’s camper. Lots of police and fire crew activity followed. The driver was unhurt , Steve’s camper was not damaged and the car had to be towed away.
We closed in an opening on the pop up roof as it just made more sense to do it now.
We also spent time saying good bye to Carole Schenk as she flew home to St. Louis. Carole will be surely missed as she constantly reminder us to stay hydrated all summer long. She always thanked us for our hard work which was so encouraging.
Thank you for all of your hard work and continued dedication to the project.
