So when I arrived on the site today, I noticed increased activity from almost all of the trades. Lots of stuff getting done. 13 weeks from now GoDaddy will take possession of the new building. This area is almost completely done, as far as exterior paint. All of the photographs I’ve taken so far of the project can be seen  here.

The painters are taking the plastic off the windows, where the painting is done. The building looks really sharp.

Lots of “dirt” work going on. Looks like they are getting the dirt ready for the finished product, paving, and landscaping areas. Parking lot, and etc.

With the cloud cover, the roof was not really hot. Lots of progress on the roof, as far as getting the air handling vents connected to the blowers.

Some of the workers on lunch, relaxing against the side of the building in the shade. This is my favorite photo from today. As always, all images shot with the Canon 5D Mark II, EF 24-105 F4 L lens, and some of the interior images have flash fill provided by the Canon Speedlight 580 EX II. All of the photographs I’ve taken so far of the project can be seen here.
