Today was an early day for all of us. Up at 4:30, depart home 5:30 and begin work at 6:00. Debra and Anne had to be at church at 6:00 this morning because it was their day to prepare breakfast for everyone. The other days they have been able leave home 8:00 or 8:30. It’s the early wakeups and long days that make Constructors so much harder than NOMADS. But, most people work Constructors for only one week so we can work those hours for one week. Don’t think we could do it for five consecutive weeks like a few people do each year.
The project is really moving forward. Today the fire-break drywall installation and mudding was completed. Both bathrooms in the vestibule framing was completed and some of the headers installed. The major accomplishment of the day was the moving of the truss beams that will support the balcony in the rear of the sanctuary inside the building and carefully placing them upon the walls. It took careful orchestration of people and lifts to accomplish the task. The work on installing the fire blocks in the walls is continuing as well.
After Anne and Debra cooked and served breakfast and cleaned the kitchen, they returned home and painted the hall and master bath at our house. We are pleased with the results and it checked two more items off our to-do list. Slowly making progress.
It was another good day!
