Interior Chapel Door Restoration

There is a set of double wide doors on the south (rostrum) end of the chapel that open up into the base of the bell tower. The original doors that occupied this location were much like the existing exterior doors that open up to the outside of the bell tower with a striking arched top and arched stain glass panel insert. In 1959 this door opening was sized down, and the arched window removed. We would like to demo out the existing doors, reopen the original door opening, re-install larger doors along with the original arched stain glass window, still safely stored on the premises. Since, without tearing the wall open, not able to determine how much of the original door casings and trim, if any, might be intact behind the closed in walls, our estimate for this project is unfortunately imprecise.
