Living Stones Church Renovation
LIVING STONES: 8 WEEKS LATER
Over a span of 8 weeks, Homestead has had the incredible opportunity to take on a major church renovation at LivingStones Church in Red Deer. Besides being a great project allowing for some creative design work, we particularly enjoyed this one, as Living Stones has been the home church for both mine and Brent’s families for several years now.
When people ask me what I enjoy most about doing renovations, I always tell them it’s being able to witness the transformation that occurs in every space we work on. Even though a project from A to Z can take time, but it is very rewarding for us to watch our renovation clients take a sign of relief and joy when they see the completed project.
When we started this church renovation at the beginning of August, in my humble opinion, many of the church fixtures appeared in need of some modern updates, in particular the golden oak chair rail in the foyer, and pink/green carpeted stage in the sanctuary.
Rather than scrapping several hundred dollars worth of hardwood, we elected to have our cabinetmaker, Dave Gollum of Timberwolf Cabinetry, re-purpose the chair rail into some beautiful standing coffee tables for the foyer area. Other foyer renovation updates included new info kiosks, reupholstered and additional acoustical sound panels on the walls and ceiling, new paint, and floor-to-ceiling decorative signage panels added along the north wall.
Expanding and updating the stage was one of my favorite parts of this church renovation.
After framing in the expansion, we one of our business partners, NuFloors, provide and install some beautiful vinyl plank, which created a more modern look, and had the added benefit of helping to dampen vibrations and excess noise, adding to the acoustics of the room. The new sound, lighting and video systems, provided by Big Guy Productions, provided the icing on the cake for the sanctuary facelift. In addition, many thanks to Kevin of High Energy Electric, for great work done and many hours spent running wire through the ceiling, to power it all.
As this project drew to a close, I can honestly say being a part of this large church renovation has been a satisfying and enjoyable experience, especially for a place we attend.
