Work on the center aisle continues. The base structure to raise the aisle has been installed. Workers in these photographs can be seen preparing to install the ramps at the ends of the aisle.
Later, the entire floor will be capped with plywood before new carpet is installed. Meanwhile, painters are prepping the walls in advance of painting next week.
Brian of Moore Painting asked the rector for her input regarding the color of the lower wall trim. Currently, the lower portion of the wall consists of two different shades of brown (paint and stain, neither very pleasing).
Brian also took a photo of the nave for his records. At the same time, Hugh met with an engineer to clarify conflicting information on the balcony’s weight-bearing capacity.
Off-line, Peter took the brass sanctuary candle receptacle and mechanism
to a specialist in S. Portland for cleaning and adjustment.
