Even better as we get more spice sprinkled on it, look at how the windows pop now. Soon, with tomorrow’s additions, we will be ready for the steeple. Taking longer because the detail on the windows is taking 3 coats, as is the black trim paint over white, but I think it is worth it.
Starting before daylight in the morning, Jerry and Michelle are knocking out the spice job on the Forget Me Not Chapel and it is looking incredible.
Predawn spicing going on at TTH.
Now the spice is adding flavor.
Michelle is stretching a bit to do the chapel.
Into the heat of the day we go with Jerry and Michelle having been out here since before the light of day, so as to get some cool painting in before the sun came up. Heh.
Still more accent paint coming as we work our way up the sides to the top.
I like the trim painted so as to make the windows pop out better.
The steeple gets its first coat.
The ridge cap is back on in anticipation of the steeple.
Here is the vent for helping the sound of the bell carry out and about.
Side view of the steeple.
These are longer pews and a great pulpit for the preacher in the family.
All original glass in these windows to the front porch. Beautiful reds, blues, greens, and the colors God created in their best brilliance.
Up above is more stained glass, in cobalt, red, and greens again.
I wonder who the blessed new owner will be. This is going to be a knockout and if one wants to purchase it and keep it here for a while until their land is ready, I am all for it in hopes that we can have a few weddings inside before she leaves and give a good reason for ringing the bell in the steeple.
