Church Work Week 11/15-19
It was just another busy week working at church. The concrete company poured the floors in both bathrooms, kitchen and the electrical boxes in the new slab. Turned out very nice.
The site contractor installed the fire hydrant. So there work is done until Spring.
We built walls in both bathrooms one day, which was a lot of fun. We removed the bathroom window and built a frame to fill it in and insulated it. We then built the small perpendicular walls for the double sinks in both bathrooms.
We installed drip flashing on the fellowship hall former A/C wall openings.
We installed a security bar on the double doors we installed a few weeks ago. Just gives us more security.
We built framing for the electricians breaker box in the fellowship hall.
Made a dump run, which is a common theme at a construction site.
The most exciting work we did was install the PVC facia boards on the curved roof. Before Steve Schenk left for home we cut the curves and compound cuts, but ran out of time to install all of them. So we all gingerly climbed the ladder carrying tools and materials and started installing the facia board on the easier side, which we could reach by standing on the lower roof. Though we did have to hang out over the edge to nail in the end. Next we got up on top and crawled to the front edge and the four of us lowered the facia board in place. We then hung over the edge nailed it in place, screwed it in and hammered in the plugs. It went well. Next we tackled the most difficult section, which was the side. Together we held each piece in place and repeated the process to install it. To my surprise laying on your stomach with a team member holding your belt or legs made the process all that much better! The facia boards look really nice. Nice work guys.
We worked 62.5 hours this week, which is impressive. Hopefully we will take a short break next week for Thanksgiving.
Thanks for all that you do to build our church.
