The steeple is being completely renovated as most of the parts have rotted. It will be replaced with matching parts to keep the original look; however, the railing must be raised to meet the code. We did this by elongating the balusters to the appropriate height. The large stained glass window on the right side of the front elevation also needed to be replaced as most of its components had rotted. All of the stained glass was successfully salvaged for use in the new window. Re-using the stained glass will restore the original look and provide privacy from the city streets. The stained glass window which measures approximately 8' wide and 17' tall was made using African Mahogany. These pieces were used as the template to draw and recreate the new window. The drawing process alone took nearly 4 full days. Production took 265 hours which is about 4 weeks. It weighed approximately 700 pounds before any glass was inserted. As a precaution the window was installed before inserting any of the glass.
