Accessibility Project Update The main floor restrooms are finished except for a few final touches. We now have 4 accessible new restrooms! The elevator is completed and is operational. Please feel free to use it as needed. Very soon a group from the congregation will be instructed on the mechanics of the elevator and what we need to know about emergencies. If you would like to be part of this group please let me know. Work in progress includes the flooring in the basement and new entry way. The maple steps to the sanctuary are being built. The protective bars for the west window facing the landing to the third floor are being constructed. Final painting touch up work is in progress. The project is very close to completion. The basement salvage sale is the next big project. Work on organizing the salvage has begun. Currently this project is on hold until the construction equipment is removed from the basement.

The main floor restrooms have lights installed, are primed and are ready for fixtures, final painting and flooring. As the work on the new restrooms is in progress we only have restroom access in the basement. During this past week quite a bit of the construction equipment has been removed from the basement.

 

There will be protective bars on the west window facing the landing to the third floor, and drawings are in progress. The flooring for the elevator entry way and stairs is on site, and installation work will begin as soon as possible.  Final painting work is in progress.

 

The elevator is almost finished. The major work is done, and the final wiring work is in progress. The tile floor in the elevator cab needs to be installed. An elevator inspection will be scheduled soon.

The basement restrooms are completed. We do have access to the basement and the restrooms using our new stairs. Work on the main floor restrooms is expected to begin the week of January 2nd. As the work on the new restrooms is in progress we will only have restroom access in the basement.

The new stairs are in and the railings installed. The elevator area on all levels has been painted, but not finished. There is quite a bit of final painting to do after the elevator work is finished. The final painting is postponed because of the elevator installation work to be done. We may use these stairs and have been assured that even during the elevator installation, the stairs will be accessible. The door hardware is in place. Other work still to be done other than painting includes installation of maple flooring, the maple stairs to the sanctuary level, the tile entryway floor, and the stair treads on the rest of the stairwells.

On December 14th, we received a new status report on the elevator. The elevator hydraulic parts did arrive on a dock in New York the 6th of December. However, instead of being shipped immediately, there is a waiting period for shipment. Now the timeframe is arrive here mid January, installation by mid February, possibly the first of February. The hydraulic unit only is made in Europe. The elevator is an Able International brand from a company in Louisville KY. This is a reliable 100 year old company. When the elevator is complex, as ours is, the hydraulics are ordered from Europe.

The basement restrooms are completed. We do have access to the basement and the restrooms using our new stairs. Work on the main floor restrooms is expected to begin some time after December 11th.

The new stairs are in and the railings installed. We may use these stairs when workers are not present, because finish painting work has begun and scaffolding is still in use. The door hardware is in place. Woodwork and doors have the primer coat only. Work still to be done other than painting includes installation of reclaimed maple flooring, the maple stairs to the sanctuary level, and the stair treads on the rest of the stairwells.

The elevator status remains the same. The elevator was due to land on a dock in New York the 6th of December. With the holidays figured into the installation plan, we can expect that it will be delivered and available to install by the 3rd week in December. Based on expected installation time, the elevator should be operating in mid-January.

Thanks to everyone for their patience with this exciting project. The Kosciusko entry will be open for the Bazaar on December 10th, and for the congregation to bring items into the church beginning around noon on December 9th.

The basement restrooms are nearly complete. When the new stairs are completed, and the final work on the restrooms stalls is complete, we will have access and use of the basement restrooms. Work on the main floor restrooms is expected to begin some time after December 11th.

The sanctuary roof work is in progress, and should be completed soon.

The west vestibule stairs are in; however, we will not have regular use of them until all the railings are all installed. Some railings have been delivered and will be installed beginning November 21st. The west wall of the entry area needed some major renovation and is ready for finish work. Painting and final drywall installation are in progress.

This week we received information regarding a definite plan for arrival and installation of the elevator. The elevator is due to land on a dock in New York the 6th of December. With the holidays figured into the installation plan, we can expect that it will be delivered and available to install by the 3rd week in December. Based on expected installation time, the elevator should be operating in mid-January.

Thanks to everyone for their patience with this exciting project. The Kosciusko entry will be open on Sunday, November 20th and on Wednesday, November 23rd for the Community Thanksgiving Service.
