Some of the front pews were moved to the southern most part of the sanctuary before the first section of old carpeting could be removed. Pews are screwed into the floor. So, each pew has to be unscrewed before it can be moved. You can see white foot prints on the red carpet. That occured during the painting of the walls. We didn't bother vacuuming that up since the old carpet was scheduled to be replaced in just a few days!
