Primer and Copper

Inside the Cathedral, the sanctuary is prepared for the return of a huge lift crane to move the painters up to the ceiling. Other painters are in the nave applying a white base coat to the columns and to the molding that runs throughout the lower church.

Outside and above the nave, roofers have installed the first section of shiny bright copper roofing. The black paper or fabric is a material that separates the copper from the metal decking. It will prevent any electrical or galvanic action between the two metals.
