The latter few workdays my husband together with Karim, who is with us a few hours per day monday to friday, has worked on more preparations on the “foundation” for the lantern.
At the same time Eric, in his workshop some kilometers away from here, has been working on the onion dome. Last night I got the following picture in a mail:
Today my husband, Karim and Jonatan – who is also since a few days sharing time with us 5 days a week – were preparing so that it will be as safe as possible to climb up and work on top of the roof. It is a rather slippery roof, so today they fastened a few planks up there so that the shoes can have some grip…
And below is a picture that I got via mail this afternoon from Eric who finally had received the resin he has been waiting for. An environmental friendly strong “glue” to make the dome solid. He got the package today and has already prepared the shape:
Late afternoon today Lärkan went to the tinsmith with the square foundation with the octagon hole =the foundation of the lantern. He also brought three of the windows, so that the tinsmith could take some measurements…
To have metal windowsills put up as soon as possible is part of the preparations to prevent rain from coming IN to the chapel.
As You notice, we are getting closer to mounting the lantern. I am so exited, and also thankful to our Lord for having come so far in our preparations.
