Pre-building this fall

Thank you for honoring your commitments to Cornerstone for Generations. They are coming in consistently. Keep up the good work!

While we are focused on design drawings and building permits, we are super excited about the amazing deal we got on top grade kitchen equipment. It was sold to us as one-month used “scratch and dent” but we’re hard pressed to find any damage. It will be great in our new facility. Guy Fieri would be jealous!

What’s done

  • Church Health Study
  • Feasibility Study
  • Architect Selection
  • General Contractor Selection
  • Raised Capital for Down Payment
  • Appraisal and Loan
  • Commitments Coming in Consistently!
  • What’s happening now

    We have just completed the appraisal and loan process, and will now continue to focus on completing enough of the design drawings (30%) to allow the builder to firm up pricing with vendors.

    Building permits

    We expect to have 60% of the design drawings by December 1. After that, it will take approximately 90 days to obtain building permits. We are grateful for a strong relationship with the City of Snoqualmie and proud of how our people have stepped up whenever needed to serve our community.

    Building development

    Pending the building permit approval, we are on track to have 100% of the pricing and drawings done by January. Only then can we finish the value engineering and MEP (mechanical, electrical and plumbing). We will be able to start construction when we have buildable weather in the spring. Our goal is to start mid-March 2018 and complete by Easter 2019!

    If you are a formal member at Church on the Ridge, we hope you’ll join us for the Family Meeting, Sunday, November 12 at 12:30pm, to get even more details. RSVP here.

    How you can pray

    Please pray that God would provide for all those who have made commitments to Cornerstone for Generations. Pray that God will lead us to construction companies that believe in our church project and will give us discounted bids and favor in scheduling!
