Not a lot new to write about this time around… much more of the same happening at the G.A.R. with regards to the restoration of the exterior. There’s more to see than talk about.
We did have one great discovery last week outside under the circular windows we realized someone covered a great wood detail with a (easier to maintain) piece of metal. Painted, it was hard to call out from street level but with the team up close and on lifts we found it. Needless to say – the metal will go away and our carpenters will restore the original look and feel.Check out a couple close ups of the stonework. There was one piece that had slipped out above one of the windows. Here, they got the stone back in place and patched with the similar mortar from 1899.Last but not least, the “half circle” windows from the balcony level. A cool angle from the interior shows the green space across Grand River at DTE.
