A web meeting was held with our consultants to discuss a couple floor plan options that had been provided by Excel. During the meeting, Excel expressed a little concern that they could not find anywhere that the roof over the kitchen had been made to withstand a second story which could mean replacing that roof to make the second story possible.
By the end of the meeting, the committee was definitely leaning more toward one option than the other but had some design questions as well as property line questions since the church property shifts at the middle. Excel said they thought both options would work on the property but they would check into our allowed building setbacks.

This was the second web meeting (3rd meeting overall) where we got to view a third option which address some gathering space questions and possible property line issues. While the committee liked some things about the new option, it seemed to take away from some of the needs we had highlighted in the beginning. We discussed getting some elevation drawing to see what the outside of the church would look like and also trying to alleviate some of the things we liked from the third option but still covering our original needs.
Excel was going to look into creating some elevations and the committee was going to confer and finalize what our needs and wants were now that we have seen some options the determine our next steps. Our next meeting is tentatively scheduled for May 13th.
