Time lapse to 5-13-15

Same time-lapse, from two different angles

5-13-15 walkthrough... lots going on!

Late-stage steel work, exterior masonry, stud framing, roof insulation and nailbase, electrical rough-in, fire suppression installation, and the hardest working plumber in southern Illinois (and then some!).

Tower deck

With the bells in place, the tower can be continued. The octagonal base for the spire is already installed; the spire is expected to go up on June 3-4.

Restart Party and Signing the Beams

About 150 people gathered for good food, to celebrate the restart of construction after winter break, and to leave their mark. Many signed their names and names of loved ones, and wrote favorite verses and prayers. Our memories and hopes are now literally and physically part of the very walls of this church.

Monday March 30 will officially end our partial winter shut-down. Focus will be in wall framing and roofing, with masonry starting next week. You can see here some decking started on the East end.
