In January, Randy and Tim bought this property for a shop for their painting business, ABE Painting. It is a property enclosed by a fence. There is a lot of work to be done yet, but they have made a valiant beginning in remodeling it for the use of their business and also for the youth activities of the church. Keep in mind as you view the pictures that nothing is finished yet; it is a work in progress!
This is the first room you enter. It is a nice sized room that they have painted, (fauxing yet to be done), wainscoted, put a new drop ceiling in, put beautiful tile floor in. They plan to put in kitchen facilities and have round tables for the youth activities of the church. This will be a wonderful room when it is finished.
The next room is the office. It is unusual because they used the blueprints from one of their big jobs to wall paper in the scrunched up sort of way. (They have done this with brown bags in Randy's house. see this blog for instructions.) They didn't tear the blueprints, though, just scrunched and overlapped them.
The next two pictures are of the equipment room.
The next two pictures are of the paint room. It is double insulated with a little heater, so that none of their paint will freeze.
This picture is looking back toward the ministry room. We are standing in the office area. The paint room is the closed door on the right. The double barrel wood stove is on the left. Equipment room to the right. Behind the photographer is the big room that will be the paint spray booth room with the big white double doors, one of which is in the picture.
Pray for Randy and Tim to have the jobs and the money to get the whole building complete and functional. They are already using the ministry room for Bible Study and prayer with their employees on Monday mornings. We know God wants to do great things with this property. The parking area has to be graded to improve the drainage. There are lots of needs, but they can only do it as they have the money for it.
