Let Construction Treen take you for a tour of the building.
The roof wasn't on yet in September (8, 2009)...
... but a month later (October 8, 2009), roof! What a difference a month makes!
View of my new Laboratory, Sept.
A shot toward the lab side of my classroom from September 8, 2009. The opening to the outside will be a floor to near ceiling window. The pipes sticking up from the floor are drains for my sinks, I believe.
Classroom side, Oct.
A month later (October 8, 2009), the room is looking better. This is the classroom side of the room. The floor to near-ceiling window is boarded today.
Laboratory side, Oct.
The lab is looking good! The doorway beside the floor to near-ceiling window is to the storage room. (Oddly enough, there's brick between my room and it, yet will be drywall between it and the biology room. What, they think we'd blow drywall down in chemistry? Heh heh heh.)
New mode of conveyance for students...
To help the elementary students get more exercise, the new building will have a new way for kids to get around. Ceiling mounted monkey bars! (Oh, OK, it's conduit for the wiring. But I couldn't help but think they looked like exciting monkey bars.)
The Secretarial Pool
I was amused to find this puddle in the exact spot where the secretaries will be in the new building. So *that's* what a Secretarial Pool is! :-)
