3.27.12 I just got back from vacation to find that the building now has a full roof, but hasn't progressed quite as quickly as I had hoped due to the strong winds.

3.6.12 We have had a slow few weeks as we have waited for the trusses to arrive from the west coast. They were delivered on 3.5.12 after a slight delay caused by snow out west.  Now that they have been set into place, the roofing will begin.

1.21.12 It has snowed the last few days, so we haven't had as much progress, but if you look closely you will find more walls framed.

1.12.12 It may be snowing today, but much progress has been made this week visually speaking as the framing of the building has begun a week ahead of schedule.

1.12.12 Today as I drove into town I found that framing had begun.  Thanks to near 60 degree temps. Unfortunately, it's going to snow later this week.

12.22.11 Work continues to progress at the new building site as evidenced by the erection of the storm shelters/restrooms.  If the weather continues to cooperate, i.e. no snow, they should begin framing in the next two weeks.

11/30/11 Things have progressed since I left for vacation as the new building continues to get its footprint cemented.  I'll have more pictures of the progress latter in the week once I've gotten time in the daylight.

11/10/11 I ventured out to what is now a soggy construction site to find cement trucks backed up as they pour the footings for the building.

11/7/11 On my way into work today I noticed that the lot was busier than it has been the previous couple weeks as there were several trucks and people along with more machinery. It would appear that they should be able to start pouring cement in the near future.  Please see the following photos.

10/17/11  No new milestones at the site to speak of as work progresses.  They should be pouring cement in the next week or two. Here's some photos of the groundbreaking, which was held 10/13.
