Chapel Ceiling Renovation

In 1959 the ceiling in the chapel was lowered by way of a dropped tile ceiling. This ceiling is 16′ high. It hides the original vaulted ceiling which was roughly 25′ high in the center. The original vaunted ceiling was beautifully unique like the current ceiling in the building’s west side room (historically known as the Cultural Hall). Our desire is to remove the dropped ceiling and restore the original vaulted ceiling. This is the mother project in the chapel! It will require the removal of the asbestos acoustic tile, the suspension framework, insulation and entail extensive repairs to the historic pioneer ceiling. It will also require a new plastering, painting, crown molding, new lighting configuration and new insulation. It will be a messy project! Unfortunately, right now this project sits at the bottom of our wish list. It will be expensive and will close off the use of the room for several weeks. This project is estimated at $16 to $18,000.
