THE INITIAL SOLUTION & obstacles

Created a building committee.

Remodel Church: Cost $5MM:

  • Would solve the choir staircase, ADA bathroom, plumbing, electrical & add a few pews.
  • Didn’t solve many of the needs.

Went to Village of KB with plans to remodel.

Allow remodeling if we bring the entire church up to code (50% rule):

  • Install sprinkler system.
  • Hurricane impact windows.
  • Elevate to 15ft.

Conclusion:

  • Not worth putting in so much money into such an old building.
  • Cannot bring it up to code by remodeling.
