Program Center: Construction Update

Volunteers at Camp Liberty have been hard at work on the Program Center.  The underfloor plumbing and electrical work was completed and approved by the building inspectors a few weeks ago.  Last week, the interior was compacted in preparation for laying the concrete floor.  The Thermal Star Radiant Floor Insulation and the Pex tubing that will provide the radiant floor heat were installed.  

On Saturday June 20th, a volunteer crew from Elitecrete, lead by owner John Brish, laid the interior concrete floor.  This Monday, a volunteer carpentry crew led by David Behnke, Program Manager for the Jackson County Habitat for Humanity chapter started on the rough framing work.   Framing will continue for about another week, before roofing, siding and interior work commence.

Please check out photos of all the construction progress being made HERE.
