Raising the Roof

Posted by Deacon Christine Yucha on

Finally!!! After months of delay the new roof trusses for the North Wing have arrived. These trusses will help support the existing load of the roof and increased load from new mechanical equipment, as we've discovered that our existing trusses aren't up to the task. The current trusses will...

In the works

Posted by Pr. Zak Wagner on

It has been nearly a year since the beginning of construction at St. Paul. The joy of the past months has been gathering together in our new (and somehow the same) spaces with new (and many of the same) faces! In many ways the work within our church is entering into a new and exciting phase as...

Up and Away

This week our new glass doors at the East entrance (Door 4) were installed. It's amazing how much natural light now filters down to the Fellowship Center- exactly the kind of warm, welcoming effect we were going for! The doors are still getting connected to our access control system, but should...

Almost there...

Each week the lower level gets closer and closer to completion! Flooring is down, accent paint is going up, and another coat rack is hanging on the wall! Robe closets are installed back in the Choir Room and are waiting for their fresh coat of paint next. Door hardware all over the ...

The lower level is getting closer to completion every day! Accent walls were painted this week, and a small section of wallpaper applied in the Fellowship Center. Mirrors are going up in the restrooms, along with window coverings. Outside, fine-tuning our mechanical system continues to take...

Exciting news this week is that our new access control system is fully installed. YAY! This means we'll eventually be able to control access for individual doors and users, but first we have to figure out how to program and set everything up! In other access-related news, the new door for Hands...

Say hello to our new Sound Booth! For many years this room up in the Loft has served as a storage place for banners and other items, but it's been repurposed to serve as our primary area for managing the audio and visual components of worship. Connected to the main sound cabinet in the Sacristy...

Come on in!

Exciting news this week is that the East Entrance is now available for use on Sunday mornings! The final door is not yet installed, but the temporary construction door works just fine, and makes the walk from the back parking lot a lot less tedious! Please feel free to use this entrance for...

Sinking in

Posted by Deacon Christine Yucha on

Work continues, even as we wait to identify a solution for the pre-existing failing roof trusses in the North Wing. Bathrooms are rapidly taking shape on the lower level, with tile work and plumbing fixtures going in this week. The sink for the Sacristy is also installed, which includes a...

A place to hang your hat (or coat)

Posted by Deacon Christine Yucha on

After the elevator, this week's construction update may be the most exciting  yet... we have a coat rack in the Foyer, including hangers! There was lots of concern in the design phase about having adequate space to hang coats, so we hope this passes muster! Additional coat racks will be...
