All of the plaster repair work, and subsequent painting, is finished! Work in the sanctuary concluded on September 10, and was immediately followed by a deep-clean of the carpets. Plaster and paint work cost a total of $39,502, which was within our planned budget, but above the initial estimate, due to additional repairs needed to stabilize the walls around the altar. We also exceeded our initial estimate for electrical work, so that we could ensure as many wires as possible are now hidden behind the walls.
The completion isn't a minute too soon, since there is a wedding scheduled for Saturday, September 14!
