February 28th marked the two-year anniversary of the Shrine being saved from demolition! Two years and much persistence later, it is looking very likely that the Shrine’s new roof will begin to go on soon!! The installation of the first truss is tentatively scheduled for sometime this week, the week of March 12th. When this happens, we are going to celebrate!! Stay tuned to our website and social media channels for breaking news!
Despite the cold weather, a lot of construction work carried on at the Shrine. The western interior elevation was covered in protective coating to keep temperatures warm enough for work to continue. Steel for the Shrine’s new roof has been fabricated throughout the winter.
