Terrazzo floor almost done pouring! Next step sanding the terrazzo down to reveal the color specs in the floor!
A sample of one of the Celtic knots(incomplete) that will be inside the Nave of the church
New floor construction has started! The floor is now level for the first time in 150 years!!! Some spots were off as much as 2 inches!!! Next step will be the terrazzo!
New lighting(not complete), illumines the newly colored arches and rose windowNew faux wood paint encompasses the rose window, as well as all the windows inside the church
Painting is complete minus some touch ups, as is much of the restoration of the wood paneling.
Stars almost complete, new recess lighting and uplighting will illumine parts of the Nave that never saw light before!
New subfloor being installed, which a new terrazzo floor go over the top...or we could leave the plywood and start up St.Patrick's/St. Brigids' School of Irish Dance! LOL!
A view from the choir loft
Tiny little gold stars will adorn the blue ceiling to give it a "sky" effect. Other new stencils also added to the bottom and top of the new green walls.
More colors and detail around the stenciling has been taking place this past week. Main body of the church painting just about done! Stencil work, adding new and cleaning old, will be the bulk of the work over next few weeks.
And God said "Let there be light!" "And color!" New LED lights illumine the painted blue colored ceiling panels of the church.
Side beams have been painted to resemble wooden beams, which allows the existing stencil to be seen clearly
The stain glass windows in the breezeway have been removed to make way for new stain glass windows that will include stained glass windows of St Brigid & St. Joseph from St. Brigid/St. Joseph Church
The ceiling and walls have been primed and are ready for paint!
The organ and pipes have been covered and some removed for the renovations. It will be cleaned and restored for the 150th.
All of the pews have been removed to be stripped and refurbished and will be reinstalled once the new floor is installed.
