Construction Update: July 29, 2018

السلام عليكم و رحمة الله و بركاته

As we are trying to close the project as quickly as possible, I understand everyone is looking at the work being done and wants to know the potential date when we will move in the new prayer hall.

 

I will do my best to send some type of weekly updates if possible otherwise every other week to make sure everyone is getting the updates as best as possible.

 

As of today (July 29, 2018):

Major Accomplishments:

  1. Stucco work – 95 %Work is completed, remaining should be complete this week
