Over the last 3 months construction has been moving along at a steady pace thanks to the good weather we have had. The final pieces of the steel structure were installed on the addition and the stud walls began going up. Sheathing and a black, weatherproof barrier were applied to the addition and lots of electrical, HVAC and plumbing infrastructure has been put into place. In the last few weeks, the roof has been closed in on the addition and the paving has been started on the Pullen Park side of the project. Check out the pictures of the progress below and look for more updates soon!
