|Members of the congregation did the demolition work to prepare for renovations to the kitchen, rest rooms, and the ADA ramp.
“The Dust Flies” on Saturday, July 22
Demolition to Prepare for Summer Renovations
A small group gathered on Friday evening to prepare for the real demolition on Saturday.
In the rest rooms, hardware was removed from the walls so that the partitions could come down.
A much larger group showed up on Saturday morning for the real work. Project Coordinator Jim Sullivan and his assistants had everything ready to go.
Once the cabinets had all been taken out, the back splash tile was removed with a chipping gun (below, left), and then the walls were smoothed with a grinder (below, right).
When all the work was done, the contrast between the kitchen everyone remembered (below, left) and the stripped down room (below, right) was amazing!
Cleaning and Lunch—While the demolition work went on, an industrious crew clean and cleaned—the hardware for the cabinets, the old appliances, and the new stainless steel sink and counters—so that everything would be ready for the renovated kitchen.
When noon came around, everyone cleaned up at the washing station in the courtyard and then enjoyed a delicious lunch. Most of the workers ate in the air conditioned Board Room for a respite from the heat and humidity
Then both groups went to work chipping out the floor tiles.
When everyone left in late afternoon, the dumpster was full of debris, and the area around the rest rooms and the ramp was cordoned off with caution tape to keep people out.
Thanks to Actus Lend Lease for letting us use hard hats and other equipment for this project.
