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!!!

The William Chick Scarritt Home, 3240 Norledge, reconstruction is progressing nicely. Should have the roof in place by the middle of January. Which means time from fire to re-roof just four months. The third floor is completed. Below, sections for the reconstruction are prefabricated just a block away. I'll follow up with the raising (literally) of the roof in a couple of weeks. The home was originally built in 1888.
