Restoration Update

Update on the William Chick Scarritt House. Tiles are going on the west half of the roof. These were imported from Brazil. The tiles came by boat to Houston and then by rail to Kansas City. Next; the windows will be installed. Some of the window in the tower are curved. One factory in Arkansas is the only one that can do thermal, curved windows. They are ready to go. After that the curved copper gutter will be installed on the tower top...but first Susan and Larry have to find someone to curve the copper!   In 1888 the construction of this home cost $30,000.  
Remarkable progress on this restoration!!!

Mighty Mo In Black And White

Above, the City from Kaw Point.  Below, from River Front Park . 
The river is higher this year than it has been the past two years in February. Usually you can walk almost to the middle of the channel on sand/rock bars. Not this year.
