This is a series of pictures taken from about the same spot and showing about the same area of Cajon Park School during the construction of the new building.
March 1, 2008: This first picture was taken before construction began. This is the old PE locker room on the lower field.
March 28, 2008: This picture was taken from the other side because construction prevented me from getting to the place where I took the first picture. The old building has been torn down.
April 9, 2008: Here is a shot of the same area on the day of the official groundbreaking ceremony. You can see they have gotten to trenching and laying out for footings.
April 23, 2008: Here they have begun working on the foundation for the new building.
May 20, 2008: The foundation is complete and now the first floor framing is well under way. You can see there is a combination of steel and wood framing being used.
July 17, 2008: The first floor is mostly framed in and the second floor is coming along well.
September 16, 2008: Framing is complete and the tarpaper is going up in preparation for stucco. On the extreme right side of the picture, at the far side of the building, is the framework for the bridge that will connect the upper floor with the main campus.
October 20, 2008: The tar paper has been covered with another layer of wood, concrete has been poured around the building, and more landscaping is in. With the time change and shorter days, the sun was lower and presented a bit of a problem with this picture.
October 30, 2008: Ten days later this slightly wider view shows most of the stucco done as well as the roofing; the railing for the walkway is in as are the windows.
November 14, 2008: Again, problems with the sun. The scaffolding is down and some cleanup has been done in preparation for more landscape work. At this point most of the work is going on inside.
December 12, 2008: Final touches before the big move in on the weekend. Students will be in the building beginning Monday, December 15.
December 15, 2008: First day for students in the new building. In spite of the rain there was much excitement. For my post on the day, click here.
