An old building was donated to our church and it was decided that it would become our new Youth Center. It was originally an old Studebaker Dealership complete with a sloped floor in the back garage area and oil trap. We have been dreaming of a new space for the kids and it will be the home of our Life Teen program among other things.
Above are the exterior shots of the building with first coat of paint and temporary construction entrances.
The building was completely gutted, rewired, plumbed and a new floor poured. This is the front facing Garrison Ave.
Above is the central part of the building with new plumbing.
This will be the bathrooms and kitchen area.
Here's the color palette.
New stud framing go in on the newly poured floor.
And new duct work!
Before the sheet rock went in, we asked the Life Teen Core Members to help hang Saints medals in the stud work so the building will be blessed for years to come.
