Social Center Part 19 (DONE!!!!!)

Not everything done. But the single biggest benchmark of success of the project has been completed.

ALL DOORS & WINDOWS INSTALLED!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The building is secure.

And on top of the all of that it got its first coat of paint.

I will let the pictures tell the story:


The door crew (9 doors in one day)

Dennis the one glass window crew

The painting crew & all of the paint

More Painting

Paint Wars (One of the granddaughters visiting from South Africa was helping, of course how can you have children around painting and not get in a paint war)

The Winner

And the final photo of the day.
