We Have Returned!

Posted by Sharon

If you haven’t noticed, it has been a couple weeks since our last construction update.  Well, we are back from vacation and ready to bring you an update of all that’s going on!  Here’s a list of what they have done on the Bear Trap since our last update:  plumbing, electrical work, insulation, the metal roof, most of the drywall inside and the siding outside, and put the plywood up above the porches.

It’s crazy how much they got done within the week that we were gone!  They should be putting in the hardwood floors soon!

The other construction team is still going strong on the cabins.  They are working on the bathroom area and even painting the outside of a cabin.  The plumbing and electrical work is just about finished.  Here are pictures of each new cabin.

Notice there is going to be tile outside of the showers!

As mentioned in a previous blog, Marty is renovating the old Cheyenne bath house into a staff cabin.  He has a little more help now that Stewart, the Ridgecrest intern, is here.

Now last, but certainly not least, the Dining Hall.  They are now patching up the floor from where the walls were taken out.  They are about finished with the new deck and it looks great!  Check out the pictures below.

There you have it!  It’s still so exciting to go over to Crestridge and see what all is happening.  It’s hard to believe that we are this far along.  I like to look back at the first picture taken and compare it the ones taken today.  God is good!

We hope everyone has had a smooth transition back into school and work after the holidays.  Check back soon for more updates!

  1. So are all the cabins going to get renevated by summer of 2009? Or is the just the new cabins, bear trap, and dining hall?

  2. We are just working on the new cabins, bear trap, and dining hall for this summer. We are hoping to renovate the existing cabins within the next couple years.

  3. Sara, that’s a great question. We are going to change the numbering system to make things easier to remember. The cabins will be numbered 1-25, starting with Chippewa. So Chip 8 will become Chip 1 and Cherokee 1 will become Cherokee 25. I know it will seem weird at first, but it just make sense to number them 1-25.

  4. They will definitely be finished by the summer time, but we are thinking around March or April. We are adding 1 new Chickasaw cabin, 3 new Choctaw cabins, 1 new Cherokee cabin, and 1 new Staff cabin.
