Beginning the Renovations

Posted by Sharon

Construction officially began today!  As I walked through Crestridge this morning, I could hear the sound of chain saws cutting and hammers pounding.  In order to start the demo inside the cabins, everything had to be moved out.  That includes 240 beds, 240 matresses, 200 night stands, 40 dressers, and several small tables.  So, we called in some guys to come help us out!  Wayne, the Ridgecrest intern, and eight other guys spent almost 3 days moving all the furniture to the gym.  Now our gym, as you can see below, is filled with furniture.

I don’t believe I have ever seen an older cabin completely empty before.  You can tell from the pictures below that they need some help.  They are just a little dirty.

We had a couple Alumni come in this past weekend to save some boards from Cherokee 25 that were going to be replaced.  Since that cabin is designed different than the others, we were able to salvage some of the signatures.

The next step in the renovation process is to remove the roofs, take out the toilets and sinks, and remove the bathroom walls.  By 10:30AM today, they had almost completed those tasks in Chippewa 1.

It’s an exciting time here at Crestridge!  We are so thankful for the ways God has and continues to bless and provide for us!

  1. Wow! I’m sad to see the signatures and memorabilia go, but I don’t mind waving goodbye to our old bathrooms. They were getting pretty gross. Will you guys save any parts of the cabins or will you renovate the whole thing?

    I’m all ready counting the days till camp! See you all there in 2010!

  2. Yes, the bathrooms were getting old and gross. The only thing that we are saving in the cabins are the walls, but those will be covered up. We are replacing the bathrooms, roofs, floors, and decks. It’s a big project!
