With construction mostly complete (there is still completion of the shop/office space, paving and landscaping to be done), the next phase of this project begins. To borrow from DisneyLand, that is simply to make this one of the Happiest Places in the World to live for the residents, caregivers involved and families who participate.
Fortunately, we have some great models on how that can be accomplished with the people we know from other projects. It is a process though, and one that matures and blooms as we get other families involved!
Building a fun living environment is quite a bit more involved than the construction has been and is a process that really never ends. But, it is lots of fun! Getting the community involved and our loved ones involved in the community is part of it. We have a great start on the vocational part too that helps our folks be actual contributing members of the economy to earn their way. Planning vacations, day trips, etc. and more!
If you have interest in this project, it is time to express it. Thanks!
The lower floor is now completely framed and sheeted. Floor joists should be complete tomorrow for the final level.
In this photo the framing crew is working away while a fire hydrant and water are being installed as well.
The fire hydrant!
Windows are being cut into the sheeting in this photo. Things like flooring, cabinet colors, counters, roofing and the selection of stone for use a few places are on the list to be completed soon, so they can be ordered in time to keep things moving along!
Here are a couple of photos from framing all the way back from Monday. The internal walls are probably about done now. Also, power and sewer connections have been brought on site. Next week, more framing and the extension of the water main, fire hydrant and water line.
