Horizon Christian School is changing the skyscape on the Heights in Hood River. Crew members aboard a high lift cast long shadows Thursday as they install rafter caps on the west end of the building, at Eighth and Pacific streets. The 30,000-square-foot building is ahead of schedule, said administrator Chris Herring. “We’re working hard to get the new campus open for business in September,” Herring said.

Ryan Construction of Woodinville is the general contractor, and Dan Cook and Company of Utah are the architects.
