The plywood and insulation has arrived. The electrician has begin installing the wires. Lots of lighting and electrical plugs to be set in place before insulation can begin. Under the Stump is working hard to get this space ready for storage, the Power of Progress!

Wires up in the roof trusses, and through the studs in the wall finding their places to provide adequate electrical services to this space. It all takes time, the right skilled person and patience. NO POWER YET at Under the Stump!

Another step closer to lighting up this storage space and getting everything moved over. The insulation and plywood are done and the lights are being installed. Crafting this storage space opens doors to designing a welcome area for guests. Just one step closer to creating a sense of arrival at Under the Stump.

2 Ladders, 2 step benches and plywood in the space that is now finished with plywood walls. 5 Long lights installed in the ceiling.
Lights are being installed!

The roof is up and the shingles are on the storage space! There is still much work to do before we can start the welcome space! It has been a long time coming to get to this point. Needless to say we are excited to see the progress that has been happening with the renovations at Under the Stump to make a dream come true.

I was wondering how would they ever take out a garage door and put in a steel door! How to fill in such a big space. Well I guess they knew what they were doing. The renovations is starting to take shape at Under the Stump.

Barn Style building with the siding removed half of the building ground up, a piece of plywood leaning against the building and scaffolding in front of the doorway.

WOW all done! No rain can pour in through the roof now! Imagine a garage transforming into a storage space and welcome center for Under the Stump. This is a dream come true!

It's another noisy day at Under the Stump as the concrete truck pours the concrete. The men are working hard to spread the concrete and level it to the appropiate depth.

This is such a cool piece of equipment designed to level the concrete and create a even floor surface. The equipment they called a helicoper and that's kind of what is was like! Now we have to wait for a few days of drying before the project can continue. A concrete floor of perfection!
