Today before a storm blew in, I walked around to the front of the church and admired the concrete work that has happened in between snowstorms. The support walls, ramp surfaces, plaza level cap and part of the new stairs are all in place. The next step will be re-facing the brickwork.
This photo was taken two weeks ago, when forms were in place but the concrete had not yet been poured. You can compare it to earlier posts to see how the ramps have taken shape.
The contractor has brought brick samples for matching to the church exterior. None of the old facing brick on the plaza could be saved and used; it had started to disintegrate. Soon we will see the bricklayers, we hope, if the weather co-operates.
