There has been plenty progress on the building remodel at Crossroads in the past two weeks. He finished the drywall and painted the ceilings. Church members will paint the rooms and then we will trim them.
Here is one of the classrooms that is now being used since it has been cleaned up since the picture was taken. It still lacks a door as the door we had did not have all the parts for it.
Wednesday saw the first day of demolition on a major part of the building.
Here is a picture of why the work is necessary. This is the hall leading from the sanctuary to the rest of the building. If it looks small in this picture, there is a good reason. It is. One person had to stand aside to let another person pass.The graffiti on the wall is Nathan’s artwork. He is letting the demolition crew know what stays and what goes.
The two pictures above show what is going to be demolished.
On Wednesday night and Thursday night, a one man demolition crew came in and was able to get the majority of the walls torn out.
This is a shot of after he was finished. It was taken in the same location as the picture right above it. Major change huh?
On Saturday and again on Wednesday afternoon, crews from the church came to clean up and to remove more the drywall, carpet, and other things from the area. Much was accomplished.
WARNING: Picture quality is low due to darkness and dust.
Nine people worked to get this section of carpet up.
We are now close to being able to frame in new walls for the bathrooms.
BONUS: Just for fun, we included this picture of old wallpaper that we found behind some drywall in the office. Isn’t it great!
