Missionary Housing Construction Project
In July 2016, groundbreaking began for Phase 1. Volunteer laborers dug a foundation; In September 2016, another group of volunteers built the walls on which the former studio building would be placed.
The placement of the KCAM studios since 1964. The new foundation is perpendicular to the original placement of the studios. The KCAM tower field is in the background.
In April 2017, a volunteer crew spent a week turning and moving the building onto its new foundation.
The upper floor will become a three-bedroom home.
The basement will be converted into two apartments with shared kitchen.
All of the labor was performed by volunteers from Glennallen and Pennsylvania, and KCAM’s general manager.
|May 2017: A Lightshine Ministries team framed in the entryway and installed stairs to the upper and lower levels
|June-October 2017: Iindividuals, families, and teams from Ohio, New York, Pennsylvania, and Alaska have volunteered their skills and time to make progress on the inside work:
February 2018: Guys from Lightshine Ministries and YWAM in Homer, Alaska, braved 40 below zero outside to come do the initial mudding and taping of the drywall upstairs. Marty and Dave from Pennsylvania spent a week installing a furnace and the baseboard heat. We are now priming the walls and anticipate doing finish work over the next month.
|April 2018: Milt Peters and Don Ressler of Glennallen graciously spent time clearing snow off land where we anticipate breaking ground to build a 24’x26′ cabin.
