In ‘09 I was a sub-contractor working on the construction of the new Jefferson County Hospital in Fairfield, Iowa. I was hired to help install all the interior doors and hardware and other finish work. My Wife and I drove up to Minnesota earlier in the week and I detoured off our route 25 miles or so to take a few pics. The Chapel door was one of my last to install. Problem was their wall no wall to install the door to, so I ended up doing the framing to completion on the outside of the Chapel. Another way more experienced woodworker sub got to do the alter and surrounding interior work. It was a real pleasure working with the guy, he traveled around doing church interiors and similar work. He had a mobile shop in a trailer, which I got to use. The beams were constructed with metal framing and then wrapped with the finish material. Veneered panels were used on the chapel walls and all throughout the hospital. All the corners were 45ed to meet or fit. The last pic was of the hallway cantilever beams, which I missed out on. It would have been another 4 weeks of gravy work.
