Construction Update #3

By | Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s starting to look like a coffee shop! Everyday something new is happening. It’s amazing to see the progress! A little over a month ago is when construction started, and it looked like this:

IMG_1175 IMG_1183 IMG_1182It’s a bit surreal for the space to be taking shape like it is. This has been a long process for Purple Door to come about, but a worthwhile one.
It’s a blessed time as we see dreams materialize and come together. It’s surreal, yet natural. We have discussed the difficulty of this endeavor, but we have also seen the beauty. It has also been incredibly natural. Madison and I (Mark) have both been struck by how this work has simply been an outpouring of who we are, what we care about, and what we want to see happen for our friends on the streets. We are who we are because of the love of Christ; we care about the things we care about because of God’s transformative love; and we want to see what is best for our friends on the streets take root in their lives because Christ has declared them to have unsurpassable value, and we want to help them see that in their own lives.

This process has been difficult, but natural; tedious at times, but incredibly beautiful; simultaneously tiring and life giving.
As the space materializes, and decisions are made for all the finishing touches it gives an incredible burst of  energy and life as the mission we are setting out on is becoming so tangible. A space that is nice, artistic, and beautiful is exciting, because it is just one more avenue to communicate value to our employees. It also makes a lot of business sense. We want to have a space that people want to be in, and we think that is happening.

Our employees have incredible value, and deserve to work in a space that they can be proud of. As the space materializes and we see our planning come to fruition we believe that the space will be somewhere anyone would be proud to work in. And we are incredibly thankful for that.

As always you can look at more photos of the space on our Facebook page. Just click here!

This week flooring will go in (they were starting tile work this morning). Bathroom flooring is already done. Wood floor is sitting there ready to go in!

Doors will likely go in this week as well! Look at other pictures here.

It’s really fun seeing it all come together! We’re excited to create a physical space of grace, love and opportunity.
