The Renew, Rebuild , Rejoice renovation project has progressed well over the last two weeks.
Repairs to the exterior wood framing where rot and termite damage were found when the stucco was removed are nearing completion. Brickwork has continued in areas unaffected by these issues. Pending a successful inspection by the Town of Mt Pleasant this week or early next week , we expect to complete the exterior repairs by early July.
Interior work has focused on completing the necessary work to have an in wall inspection of the modifications in various areas by the Town next week. Once this is completed sheetrock work will get underway in those areas of the Narthex, pastor’s office and education wing . Installation of new bathroom fixtures will begin as well. Sanctuary work around sacristy modifications and wiring continues.
In the PLC refinishing and modifications of the pews are complete. The new high school classroom is taking shape. The new floor has been installed in the choir room with removal of the old floor in the main area of the PLC now beginning.
We completed the acquisition of much of our needed furniture from the old Blackbaud office building on Daniel Island on May 25. All of this furniture was donated by the building owners which saved us many thousands of dollars. It is now stored in the choir room pending completion of the project. Thanks to the Schutte’s for arranging this.
We still expect to complete the project on or before August 1 within the $750,000 that is budgeted .
Thanks to the congregation for your unwavering support of Renew, Rebuild, Rejoice.
