And now, only 3 months into construction, we see unbelievable progress. It's a bit mind boggling. When we were interviewing construction companies way back when, we had so many questions...all of which seemed to us to be insurmountable. To our barrage of questions, I remember Fritz from Haydon Building Corp saying: (this is a paraphrase) For us, building is like stepping off the curb.
Now I think we all agree that stepping off the curb isn't so hard. This response calmed alot of the pre-construction jitters: It's like stepping off a curb for people who know what they are doing!!! How comforting. And we've seen that Fritz was right. This thing is happening - and it is glorious to witness.
With this said: construction still isn't like stepping off the curb for us! And things don't always make sense. The lingo still escapes us at time - and we rely on Joe to translate things to 'nun language'. So, below, not only are the photos but also his comments. Hope you enjoy!
From Joe: "You will notice that the Narthex is coming along as well as the two gables that will form the cruciform. The chapel floor is all excavated right now for the ductwork and the masons are ready to bring up the east gable over the Adoration Chapel. Monday, the septic tank and leaching fields start going in!"
