Depot ceiling joists are in place

Report by Dennis Casebier

The truss truck arrived on schedule at about 7:00 AM. The driver unloaded the ceiling joists and the "boys" were quickly up on the second story floor of the Depot nailing stuff in place. Clear and cool out in the morning. About 36 degrees. No wind.

Phil, Jo Ann and I went up to the work site at just about sunset. Phil reports that by 9:30 AM all of the ceiling joists were all in place and after that the heavy plywood forming the floor was installed as was some kind of parapet around the outer edges at that level. That's about it for progress, but it is important "enabling" progress.

Now, beginning bright and early Monday morning, they can begin framing the second story of the Depot part of the building. That will change the skyline at Goffs for sure.
