Stone Bank Update
Pictures! Thanks to Scott Wagar for clambering atop a neighboring roof to get a look from the topside at the Stone Bank work.
What’s going on here?
This picture shows that there are only three, maybe four, roof beams to remove on the “bad” old part of the roof. The work ends where you see the lip of the new “good” roof membrane.
As we reported in yesterday’s post, the Stone Bank proved that it really was built to last. These photos give a great look at how thick the walls are. Stone — layers, leveled and sturdy.
So, stone by stone and beam by beam the “bad” roof is coming off the back 20 feet of the building.
And once the beams are down, the work taking down 20 feet of the south wall can continue.
Wish us good luck and good weather!
