The Inside Work:
The work on the inside of the building started to move almost as quickly as the outside. We had outlines of the new exam rooms and doctors’ offices. The foundation for our new reception desk was added in our spacious new waiting room, and it was exciting to look out on to it all from our new third floor!

The Big Green Building:
Seeing the outer walls go up made everything seem real. We no longer had to image just how big our animal hospital would be; now we could see! We knew the interior was next, and everyone was more excited than ever!

Framing the Building:
Along with spring came a big chain-link fence and a lot of building material!
The first major structure to go up was our elevator shaft. Our staff was very happy to see we were indeed getting an elevator. This will aid in getting arthritic, injured, and immobile pets down to our inpatient area for treatment. No more struggling down the stairs or long walks around the building!
Next was the progress of framing, which was going rather quickly. We were very optimistic that our expansion might just be done on time.
Adding the Second Floor:
The construction of the second floor was a very exciting thing to watch. This level will house our new exam rooms, waiting area and doctor’s offices. Above the exam rooms, on our third floor, will be our new conference room. We will have enough space for the whole staff to attend educational seminars!

Pouring the Foundation:
Because of the cold weather, things were slow going at first. For a while we thought there was just going to be a huge mud puddle next to the building! Once the foundation was poured, however, we realized this was truly going to happen. After our foundation set, the ground was frozen, so waited for warmer weather to start the building process.
