Our workers have been very busy the past few weeks at the Faith Lutheran Church expansion and remodeling project in Dodge Center. We have concentrated on completing much of the exterior work. This includes the brick veneer as well as the lap siding and miscellaneous trims on the building. We worked at completing the covered entry roof, and set the date stone in the brick columns.
Yesterday our task centered on setting the steeple with the iron cross on top. That required the use of a large mobile crane. We prepared the steeple on the ground and lifted it into position. Once set, we welded the connections. It is a sturdy assembly that should withstand the wind and weather forces for many years.
