Stone Extraction and Cleaning

Many of the front granite stones had shifted out of place over time. The restoration work involves extraction of many granite pieces, some quite large, including the carved cross over the top of the entryway gable.

Gnazzo used a lull (a combination forklift and tractor) to move these pieces and power-wash the areas behind. The stones were carefully reset in place. New flashing will be added to further protect from wet weather.
