2005 Winter Photos - B4 Continued

activity room construction
In August, work began anew in the activity room, AKA the music room.
activity room sheetrock
Here's the same back corner after some of the sheetrock was installed.
sprinkler piping
Some of the utilities in the ceiling. The hoses are for the large temporary heater set up in the gym.
insulated glycol piping
And the glycol piping got insulated...and shelving/storage was moved in from the next active work areas.
sound insulation
This view looks the other way, the opening is where the door will be installed.
mind the step
Out in the main entrance area, here goes the last bit of subfloor under the stairway.
niche market
Framing the curved wall at the main corridor. This area required some rather skilled carpentry...fortunately there were some very skilled carpenters.

B4 air handler
Last but not least, putting the air handler together in the fan room. It was in sections, each was quite heavy.

And one of the sections was missing...fortunately it wasn't one on the bottom or one with piping connections.
B4 air handler piping
The piping was complete at the end of the winter...but the fan section which connected to the hot air duct (at upper right) wasn't on station.
the completed B4 air handler in 2008

For the record, here's my 2008 photo of the completed air handler in operation.

Okay...what was going on in the dome?
