For Michael’s Eagle Project, he remodeled the Free Methodist Church Drama Room. The scope of the project was to raise the ceiling 4 feet and add storage. He accomplished this by removing the current suspended ceiling and lighting, constructing an additional 4 feet of wall, finish drywall and painted, replaced ceiling and lights and added shelving to the room. This will help accommodated large prop access to the stage and give easier access to costumes and smaller props.
