More Than Blocks

May 31, 2018

For the longest time our updates to you have been all about blocks, blocks, and more blocks. We learned that blocks are durable and fireproof. They will not rot or mould and they can’t be damaged by insects and pests. We’ve watched the block walls rise up from the ground since October. And while we are grateful to have such a strong and lasting material making up the walls of our new building, after so many months of staring at stark grey concrete blocks, one might rightly feel eager to see something new.

Well, as of this month, we are excited to see new materials being added to the mix, including the installation of steel trusses. Yesterday (May 30) marked the arrival of some beautiful Douglas fir timber beams which will be left exposed along the ceiling of the spine.
