Roof Work begins again

After a brief hiatus, our roofers are back on the job. The first priority is to finish installing the copper roof on the first small spire. The mobile cranes are too short to reach the top of the spire if their wheels are on Boulder Avenue, so they must move the crane closer to the Cathedral. A Bobcat is placing metal plates over the sidewalk to protect it from the weight of the crane.

The decorative Romanesque arch over the sidewalk between the church and school will be removed - temporarily! We will remove a section of the cinder-block wall protecting the air conditioners too. The crane will have to use that space to get close to the building.

More updates will come as we make progress. If you have any special requests for more information about a specific part of the renovation, send Mike Malcom an email:
