OC Church Rebuilding Effort Begins Four Years After Tragic Fire

OCEAN CITY – The vestry of St. Paul’s by-the-Sea Episcopal Church awarded a contract to Gillis Gilkerson Inc. last month to begin construction on a two-story addition, which will replace the rectory that was destroyed in a fire nearly four years ago.

Tom Shuster, a member of the church’s reconstruction team, said the project will begin this month, sometime after the team’s April 12 preconstruction meeting.

“There is a tentative schedule for the construction,” he said.

Crews will first focus their efforts on adding a handicap-accessible restroom to Dewees Hall, the parish’s community hall. Work to build an addition off the church’s north-facing wall will begin in May.

Do they have to make it in the same color scheme as everything else they build? It's as if the architects around here only have two colored pencils to work with, beige and light beige.

They're today's colors. Tomorrow they'll be yesterday's colors.
