Cue Led Zeppelin. It’s not quite the stairway to heaven, but these stairs did touch the heavens when they flew today.
English writer G.K. Chesterton wrote that “the reason angels can fly is because they take themselves lightly.” These 11,500-pound steel stairs must have taken themselves lightly…or maybe it was the 100-ton crane that showed up for one day only to support the weight. You be the judge.
Either way, the stairs look perfect on the north side of the building addition. And while we’re here, check out the structural steel that’s been set. Red iron lines the north side of the building and bar joists are set in the band room and the kitchen. Decking has been set in the choir room; once all the second-floor decking is set, concrete will be poured for the slab. Stay tuned! And in the meantime, may we suggest enjoying some Zeppelin on Spotify?
