Roof Project Update II

Work on the museum roof began in earnestIMG_9873 on Tuesday, September 8.  Starting from the front of the building, the crew from Buttweilers Do-All removed the tar and rock “hot roof”, added 2 1/2 inches of insulation, and glued down a new rubber membrane roof surface.

Not all of the work is on the roof, however. The skylight dome in the museum lobby had to be supported from the inside.  Project coordinator, Les Tschida, remembers the skylight falling to the lobby floor when he worked on our roof in 1988.  He made necessary precautions to prevent this.  A slight improvement from the top also eliminates this danger in the future.

We apologize for the inconvenience and the “noise from the neighbors upstairs” as the project advances.
