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.

Interior Colors Bring Warmth to The Barn

Painting and flooring crews have joined the mix at The Sanctuary, Charis Bible College's new campus in Woodland Park, Colorado. As construction progresses, the cold stark images of wall framing and raw drywall have begun to give way to a rich pallet of earthen colors as the painters have brought life to the classrooms and other newly crafted spaces. Some who have toured the site in recent weeks have commented about how beautifully the Barn's design fits in with the property's landscape. Careful attention to detail in architectural design and choices made for the interior and exterior finishes have had a great impact on the building's growing appeal.

Warm and welcoming, are just two of words that will come to mind as many of you view the images below.

Anticipation is Building at The Sanctuary

Charis Bible College's campus gatehouse at the entrance to The Sanctuary. (Click to enlarge)There is excitement building in Colorado's brisk autumn air. If you have been following the construction progress at CBC's new campus in Woodland Park, then you know that the excitement stems from the anticipation of the completion of phase one at The Sanctuary. With each update, the Barn's interior and exterior spaces take on more definition, and the building bears more resemblance to the images shown in the virtual tours we posted two years ago. As the contractors and their crews outfit the facility with plumbing and electrical services, and they continue to erect the interior walls and partitions, it becomes easier to envision the school's opening just a few short months from now.

As you take a look at the images below, recall that just 12 months ago we brought you an update from the property that showed the initial arrival of the excavation equipment. This project has progressed steadily thanks to the continued faithfulness and generosity of Andrew's friends and partners and the hardworking construction crews.
