The beginning of week five. Today we saw more floor tiling in the sanctuary and the hallway outside the chapel. Pews returned from the annex to the main nave. In anticipation of the flooring happening in the annex.
Well day 22 brings more flooring. Sanctuary required some slow and meticulous detail ensuring the tiles are level. Chapel tile installed. Hallway tile installed. Additionally,some painting, and outside of the building work cleaning the stations.
Day 23 in the books. Not a surprise, more floor being installed. In addition to the floor some staining on some of the frames that will be used in various locations.
Day twenty-four sees all of the tile laid in the sacristy, and much of the annex. The frame for Our Lady of Guadalupe was also stained today. Finally today we had some shoe molding delivered.
Day 25’s progress. More tile laid in the annex and sanctuary. They were able to grout a good bit of the tile they laid over the last several days. And some more painting in the trim in the choir loft.
Another week, if you are keeping track it is week six of the project. Today not much that you will see, more grouting, and slip grip finish applied to the floor. Oh yeah, some more wood trim stained and window inset painting in the choir loft.
Today’s efforts brought some sanctuary furnishings back to the sanctuary. More painting in the window insets, and other painting where plaster had been repaired in some of the art work. Finally, a coat of finish on the shoe molding.
Renovation day 28. I did not get pictures today, but the crew continued to paint window insets. Another coat of finish on our wood frames and shoe molding. Some cleaning of basement walls, removing efflorescence, and preparation for a new coat of floor finish on the terrazzo throughout the building. Finally, Linda and I reconnected speakers, and other sound system wiring that was disconnected. Another great day of progress.
