The building project has been going on for more than year now. I’ve published 83 posts comprising of 765  photos. The day with the most blog traffic was March 13, 2013 when I posted some pictures of the demolition. If you scroll to the very bottom of the page, I’ve put up a blog archives and a categories section where you can browse older posts.

Week 47: Stucco and Stone Progressing

Week 45: First Update of 2014

The stone and stucco work continues and the interior is ready almost ready for painting. The biggest issue holding the project back is the pouring of the sanctuary  floor, which is held back since the ground is frozen. 

Week 41: Stained Glass Installation

I previously reported that vandals had broken the newly installed stain glass, I was wrong and I apologize for this misinformation. The glass was damaged in shipping and was installed broken (to keep out the wind).  Other parts of the job are continuing with Kranendonk Construction starting on the stonework.

Week 39: Interior Work and Organ Photos

The electrical and ventilation work continues in the inside of the church. The ventilation system in the floor of the sanctuary is now finished.  The Reuter Organ Company is has posted a some pictures of the construction of the organ which you can see here: http://www.reuterorgan.com/shop_photos_viewer.html.
