The ventilation ball from the top of the tower has been cleaned, repaired, and repainted. Tito Masonry replaced it on the tower at the end of last week, and painted the roof of the lantern room. The masonry work is virtually complete, and after some final checks, the painting will begin. The scaffolding will come down, then there will be some masonry work around the bottom of the tower (this area was inaccessible while the scaffolding was in place), followed by painting in that area. While this is going on, the new railing on the catwalk will be installed. It’s taken time, but it’s all done right, and we are within 2 – 4 weeks of completion. My next update should have a definite completion date.
