Pouring concrete for the entrance

Below, you can see some photos from when the concrete was poured for the new entrance to the church. As you can tell, new blog posts have come few and far between. The blog is winding down along with the completion of the restoration project. We'll keep it online, though, for historical reasons, and to update it with any new and interesting things associated with the restoration!

Finishing Touches!

The final touches are being put on the church to prepare for Sunday Morning Worship Services. All the dust if being cleaned off the fixtures and walls. The walls are being painted upstairs. Jack Wiederhold spent the day on Thursday assembling his pipe organ in the church for use until our organ is ready. Our organ is projected to be ready at the early part of next year.

Wrapping it up!

No more Fans! We are scheduled to be back in the church this coming Sunday the 6th. Pews will be moved in upstairs, but chairs will still be temporarily used downstairs. The grout on the floor needs to cure for 28 days from the time it was completed before the sealant can be applied to the floor. Once the sealant is applied, some caulking and final touches will be done. After that is complete, the pews can be moved back in on the lower level as well.

The new stone floor can be seen from various views. The center aisle is laid with bigger, more rectangular squares, while the sides contrast with smaller stones in a variety of shapes and sizes. Notice the nice designs around the poles. More work will be done around the poles also, once the sealant is applied.

Carpet has been ordered for the altar steps and the stair landings.

Everything is coming back together nicely.
