Waiting For Windows

Lee Cowan visited the temple site yesterday, hoping to see new windows.  You remember Lee.  He and his father Dr. Richard Cowan, are collaborating on a book about Provo's two temples.
No windows yet, but Lee did capture a choreographed assembly line.  These workmen are removing scaffolding from the steeple base.
Ultimately, all the beautiful milled woodwork will look as great as this frieze board on the southeast tower.
I took a look via the construction cam this morning.  With the scaffolding off the roof, the slate can be completed.  The planter south of the pavilion, currently wearing a shower cap, was poured Wednesday morning.
The truth is, we are all watching for windows.

As I looked through your blog just now, I thought how wonderful it would be to have a photo journal like this of our very first temples. If we could see the building process for the Nauvoo or Salt Lake City temples or if we had photos of the people as they worked, how fascinating that would be. But think 200 years from now, when your blog is history, how beautiful it will be that you've captured all this to keep! These are special moments that will never happen again!

Thanks for your kind words. What we wouldn't give for a photo journal of the construction of our early temples!
