Like the tender buds of May…the balusters are blooming

2 Jun

Installation is here! A few shots from yesterday’s work by the wonderful folks at Forerunner Creations. We had the pleasure of seeing all the pieces unveiled in the morning yesterday, and they are a beauty to behold.  It is clearly a puzzle to put the components back so they perfectly align with the new stoop configuration, and rail 1 is shaping up very nicely. Most of the balusters on this side are restored rather than replaced, and the handrail is about 90% original.


10 little soldiers.

All installed, awaiting its mate.
