Project Description

An extensive renovation to the existing church which included the complete removal of the interior plaster ceiling and 8,000 SF of roof structure. The existing balcony was demolished along with 25% of the existing 100-year-old masonry walls to allow for two 2,000 SF transept additions. The new roof consisted of glue-laminated wood trusses, wood decking, and asphalt shingles while the roofing on the steeples was replaced with copper shingles. The altar was relocated, and additional seating added as well as a large walk-in baptismal font.
