New Building Updates

Paint!

April 1, 2020

The crew has been painting, both inside and out! On the interior of Building 200 (the new shelter building), the epoxy paint is on the walls in the cat rooms, and the palette is so pretty — greens, blues, and violets, which are the colors cats can see best. The lobby and utility areas are…

There has been enormous progress over the past few weeks! Things are coming together fast as we enter the finishing phase.   On the exterior, the siding, windows, and storefront doors have been installed.

Brick outside, drywall inside

March 2, 2020

The exterior brick has been installed, and it looks sharp! We’re so happy with the color and style choice. It will complement the slate grey siding beautifully.   On the interior, the crew has been working hard to get the drywall up. They’ve completed the first-side install and will soon be doing the insulation. This…

Waterproofing and interior framing

February 17, 2020

Work has now moved on to waterproofing, and the crew has installed most of the sheathing panels for the exterior walls.

Building wrap is installed over the sheathing and behind the siding as a…

Four walls and a roof

February 2, 2020

The steel frame is up, and things are moving quickly now! This week the crew has been working on the roof and exterior walls. We’re now able to walk around “inside” the space and visualize what it’s going to be like for our feline friends come spring.   We’ve also finalized our exterior color choices.…

The frame goes up

January 20, 2020

The steel frame of our new shelter building is going up! The first beam went up early last week, and things have moved quickly from there. Once the full frame is in place, the roof will be installed, then the exterior walls. We’re hoping to hit that mark by the end of this week.  …

Installing the curb and prepping for asphalt

December 9, 2019

This week the crew erected the curb forms and poured the concrete. They then spread and compacted crushed rock to serve as the sub base for our new asphalt driveway and parking lot. The final top surface will be poured toward the end of the project.   Normally these steps would occur later in the…

Retaining walls are up

November 26, 2019

We’ve experienced a whole lot of rain over the past few weeks, but we’ve managed to get the needed retaining walls built despite the weather. Due to the slope of the site, there are grading and elevation issues that have necessitated the installation of these walls.   The first wall runs along the length of…
