Floor to Ceiling Progress at the Barn

Crisp autumn air has settled in at The Sanctuary. (Click to enlarge)

As October comes to a close, construction crews at The Sanctuary have far more work completed than they have left on their to-do lists. From outdoors to inside, noticeable progress has been made since our last pictorial. Concrete continues to flow into parking lots, nearly all of the Barn's windows are in place, the maze of electrical wires and water pipes that make for modern convenience is nearly set to bring the building to life, video screens have been concealed in classrooms and ceiling tiles have been hung. Here are the most recent pictures from the Barn, heading into the final stretch of phase one at CBC's new campus.

Time-lapse Construction Update Video

Andrew's television crew has put together a fantastic time-lapse video showing the progression of the ministry's building project in Woodland Park. Some will remember the opening scenes from an earlier video, posted in May of 2010, where Andrew unveiled the plans for CBC's new campus on the hood of his Jeep. In just over four minutes you will be brought up to date and be able to see the vast amount of work that has been completed at The Sanctuary.


CBC's New Rooflines and Textures

With each passing week the progress at Charis Bible College's new campus in Woodland Park, Colorado seems to accelerate. As the individual construction crew's contributions are integrated, the new spaces become more recognizable.

Noticeable highlights in this week's update include the crispness of the newly shingled rooflines and the layered textures of the building's interior. From the rugged stone work to the freshly tiled walls in the restrooms, the colors and textures of the first building at The Sanctuary are beginning to show inviting signs of a very welcoming and distinctly Coloradan atmosphere.
