Capital, part 2
Now that the capitals are unmolded comes the job of getting them installed. Way up here.
But before we hire a crane, there's a lot of work to be done to make sure those 600 pound chunks of concrete don't come crashing down on someone's head. We are in an earthquake zone, you know.
Kim had some heavy pipes made for reinforcement. He and camera-shy Shea worked all weekend installing them and strengthening the upper supports.
Here's the view from just inside the front door, up through the skylight.
Sorry, no pictures of the crane putting them in place, I was at work & Kim was too busy helping guide them into place to be able to take any pictures.
