Special Projects Around Campus

Pole building construction consisting of multiple bays; woodshop, metal/welding shop, mechanical/automotive shop, tool room, possible paint booth, material storage area including lumber, steel, electrical and plumbing and painting materials. Providing secure, adequate room to do multiple diverse projects and training sessions without regard for weather conditions or loss of tools and/or materials. $18,000-$25,000
  • Shipping Container Addition – Building a frame on top of the containers would provide a space for small group activities and projects. For example: exercise sessions, arts and crafts, music practice, meetings, etc. Additionally, this will protect the tops of the shipping containers from rusting out, making these containers usable for many years to come. $10,000
  • Cover for Laundry Area – This is a simple but important cover to keep drying clothes from getting wet in the rain. $6,000
  • Third Gate with extension walls and gate house – This gate will be located at the corner of the property, giving a third access point from the road to the ISF campus. This gate will ease the challenge of bringing large trucks and tractors with trailers onto the property, making delivery of items like firewood, hay, construction materials more efficient. $3,000
