Putting our name on it!

They are busy with final preparations... we're in the home stretch of serious construction, and now can start to put on the final finishing touches. We're so glad to say that we're on schedule, if not a little bit ahead of where we thought we'd be when we started last year!

One More Step

The staircase has finally been installed. It's a beautiful piece of steel, weighing in at 5,000 pounds. But it will connect the upstairs to the main floor, and it's not only beautiful but strong. Just like our Open Arms community.

More of the kitchen equipment has arrived. I think that it's all nearly at the building, but for the items that we're bringing with us. A couple of code-driven surprises have come up, but we still think that we're in pretty good shape. They are putting the finishing touches on a few rooms, and have officially fired up the heating unit.

What's happening at 2500 Bloomington?

What's going on at the building today, you ask? They are putting the vinyl flooring in the kitchen area, putting up lockers in the volunteer area, painting, putting up a little more siding outside, and also putting up the screen on the roof. It's a busy place!
