This recent construction update left me breathless. You see, I visit the construction site daily to ensure things are moving along and to make any last minute decisions that need to be addressed. As you can imagine construction sites aren’t typically that interesting on a day to day basis. We don’t get to notice a lot of the subtle things that will help complete the building. We see dirt, piles of debris, and lots of labor and work taking place. But…on Friday when I stepped into the courtyard and saw the completed walls, the massiveness of the fireplace, and the grandness of the 10′ high entry gates leading into the courtyard — I was BREATHLESS! It was perhaps the first moment I’ve had to really stop and appreciate the scale of this project and the hopes and dreams we hope to fulfill.
Now that I’ve caught my breath once again…we are about to enter another week of things wrapping up and finishing. Looking forward to this next round. What an amazing construction team…they’ve been working around the clock and we can’t wait to see this weeks ending successes.
