It is exciting when we get a job into the shop that will remain in the community for decades. Tom was asked to help weld on a steeple for a new church building in town. The congregation at Laramie Valley Chapel has been waiting for the addition of their steeple for several years. A large crane was used to lift up the 56 foot steel structure and then Tom and Colter welded it onto the existing building frame. Also in this video, a local construction company places the all stainless steel cross on the top. Two guys were lifted up in a steel box along with the attached cross. Once in place, the cross was bolted onto the top of the large steeple. All and all, the cross sits about one hundred feet off the ground.

Check out the short video of the action. I wasn’t able to get video of the steeple being lifted by the crane. If anyone out there was able to get pictures or video, send it my way!
