While Lenco was working on the south side brick, I was getting worried about spiraling costs. I decided I would use my free time to begin stripping the east side window trim and doors with a heat gun so that I wouldn’t have to pay someone to. After a week or two, I enlisted the help of my mom, Lisa Maggard. She was handy with a heat gun as well since we grew up in a Victorian era house that she spent many years working on.
I uncovered one of the cast iron support columns of the Armory Block building buried under trim boards. Peculiar how they covered up stuff like that over the years.
