Title:Earthquake repairs, Nov 3, 2011

Nelson Pitts works underneath the balcony

Work began this week in the interior. 

Interior—The interior damage is summarized in the report to the Diocese -"A multitude of small cracks in plaster walls; cracks in the plaster running from the top of the arches of each of the six windows to the ceiling; large crack on the wall directly under supporting beam for the gallery on the west wall of the church."  Here Nelson Pitts works on the latter problem. Thanks to Jim Heimbach for this picture and others.

Back wall Sacristy

Exterior—"small cracks running from the top of the arches of each of the six windows to the roofline; large crack on the back wall of the sacristy, which was added to the original building in the 1960’s; extensive damage to the chimney which vents the oil furnace underneath the church."  Picture above shows the large crack in the back wall of the sacristy.
