It was built around free-standing wooden posts and beams. The second phase of construction took place about a decade later. It was built on the North end of the three story building from mostly steel. Lacking construction integrity, this building was torn down as part of the major renovation project, with many of the materials salvaged and integrated into remaining parts of the facility. In its place there is now a parking lot and a beautiful green space. The third phase was built adjacent to the two three-story buildings and was fitted with a rail track where the finished pianos could be rolled onto the train car. Today this marks our Main Street. The East part of the current facility (now housing Upstreet and the Worship Center) was built in the sixties.
Originally, CLC leased unfinished space in the S. W. corner of the three story building for $1.50 a sq. ft. Relying on member's skills and resources, a section of the building was built out which contained three classrooms, a nursery, a church office, a bathroom, a small kitchen and a small fellowship room. Worship was held in a portion of the facility which is now Main Street. On Sundays, the worship services often resembled musical chairs with people changing seats due to an often leaky roof.
With growth in numbers came the need for expanded space which was not a problem since the building back then contained 120,000 sq. ft. A few walls here and a few doors there was all that was needed until the next expansion phase was called.
