Framework for the foundation

Well, it's a scorcher out there, but good news! I went by the building site today and the construction continues! Yes...that's right. The last time we started building it was short lived, but this time, all systems are go. Today, the men were putting together the gridwork to prepare for the pouring of the foundation. That metal must be roasting, and so must those guys, but they were hard at work...Texas Tough!

Building project ready to roll again

Dear Friends,
It is my pleasure to announce that last night, June 5, at 7:59 p.m., I drove past the new building site, and saw several construction workers just finishing for the evening! It is so good to see the actual construction finally taking place.

We thank each of you for your prayers, finances and other support of this project. This morning, Jack Moser reported that there was "lots of activity", and "the foreman said they would pour some of the beams today."

What wonderful news! See below for the photo Jack took this morning.

Building project begins April 1, 2005

Dear Friends,
The PAISC Building project kicked off on April 1, 2005. The construction started with great energy, until we hit a 14 inch active sewer main, heretofore unknown by our City. (Eee gads!)

The re-routing of the sewer main, and an additional water main took place in August. The rerouting was completed one week before Hurricane Rita hit.

We guess God has a plan, because things may have been far worse for us if the hurricane had hit when we were in the midst of construction.

Below you will find a few pictures from the initial construction, as well as pictures from the re-routing of the sewer main.

Check in for more details later!
