Ever since the new chapel sidewalks were completed we've been waiting for the granite inlays to be placed. This is something new for the seminary, adding text to concrete for that extra pop and as explanation of where you are. Yesterday the guys from Wachter construction were back and under the supervision of Jeff they began the process of setting in the heavy Chapel Plaza inlays.
They all took time to greet Ferdie
Then the stone masons struggled for a time over a new type of quick set concrete which had to be laid in the opening very thinly, wet, but not too wet, thin but not too thin. This process took the longest but in the end it got done very professionally.
It looks great except that last night when we went out for one last walk we saw the dreaded orange cones again. But today the stone will be cleaned and they'll be gone.
