The mystery addition

The outer shell of the mystery addition behind Jackson Hewitt and Payroll Advance is pretty well complete. I usually pass that way once or twice a day, so I have been taking pictures. Below shows the erection of the cement-block walls on October 29. The light pole that was behind the building is still standing.

The walls were up by Nov 7, and probably on that day the trusses for the roof were delivered.

I missed seeing the installation of the trusses, which probably only took a few hours. On November 12 workers were putting the foundation of the roof in place.

On November 18 workers were installing a metal roof on the entire building, both the addition and the original building.
Most of the additional work will now be inside and so until it opens, this may be the final post on the mystery addition.
