This past week crews completed the painstaking process of taping, mudding and sanding the sanctuary drywall ceiling and walls. The vaulted sanctuary ceiling and walls were then prepped with a coat of primer paint. Finish carpenters have now begun the installation of the interior columns, wood trim in the chancel and molding throughout.
Outside, work resumed on the columbarium. Footings were poured this past fall. When the weather and roadway ‘frost laws’ permit, the columbarium will receive additional concrete that will form the foundations for the various columbarium walls. Finish brick and limestone caps will follow in April.
These three photos capture craftsmen working from lifts and stilts to create a smooth, flat finish throughout the sanctuary.
These photos show the results of the paint crew working Saturday to apply a primer coat to the entire sanctuary walls and ceiling.
Finish carpenters begin the installation of trim and columns. More trim molding will be installed before everything is painted white.
Columbarium forms are installed to receive the next pour of concrete. These foundations will support the columbarium brick walls.
