Pouring The Barn Floor

Construction crews at The Sanctuary continue to make noticeable progress between Andrew's video updates. This month's video, filmed in Woodland Park on March 7th, brings viewers a fresh look at the rapidly advancing project. As you watch Andrew in this installment, you will also see a flurry of activity in the background as workers prepare and pour the floor for the main level of the 90,000 square foot Barn.

For a recap of the project's advancement, be sure to check out Andrew's previous updates, which have included the arrival of the earth movers, the leveling of the land, the foundation excavation, the preparation for the basement walls, piping in the water, the completion of the basement support structure and the enclosure of the south-facing wall. Each of these videos documents the progress as Charis Bible College's new campus continues to take shape.
