  • On May 11, 2011, our contract with C. T. Wilson was agreed to and signed by Marcia Ladd, president of CitP board of trustees and Peter Hausmann of C. T. Wilson.

C. T. Wilson and Co. provided us with performance bond and builder's risk policies. With everything in place, we were able to close on our loan with Presbyterian Investment and Loan Corp of PCUSA on May 18, 2011.

  • Presbyterian Investment and Loan (PILP) requested representatives from our congregation visit Dreaming Creek, the company providing the structure for our timber frame for the new sanctuary. So, on May 10th, Jerry Wehmueller and Lynne Hoerter, both members of the building committee, visited Dreaming Creek's facility in Floyd, Virginia.

Bobby Shortridge, president of Dreaming Creek, gave a tour of the plant where work was in progress on CitP timbers. Just under100 timbers had been processed with about 160 to go. With a single operator giving commands via computer, each timber is drilled and cut individually. Following this, the final work is done by hand.

While Jerry and Lynne were there, the Dreaming Creek team assembled one of our trusses to confirm all would fit together. Everything aligned perfectly.

The entire Dreaming Creek team is very excited to be working on our sanctuary. Each one takes great pride in their work and all are experts at their craft. The men told us repeatedly what a beautiful space we'll have.

You can look forward to witnessing the timber raising sometime during the last half of July. We will give plenty of advance notice so you will be able to view this exciting process.
