It has been just over a week since we had to delay the opening of the Tree of Light. The day after the branch broke, I went to the metal shop that we originally hired to build the aluminum skeleton of the Tree to talk about fixes and further reinforcements. They made suggestions, but I wanted us to go the extra mile with safety and durability.
So, on Monday of this week, my architect friend, John Drake, graciously gave of his time to come take some measurements and photographs to begin creating a 3D rendering of the Tree. Once the rendering is done, this model will be handed off to a structural engineer for approval of the weight loads, angles and materials. This will ensure safety and durability for years to come.
Then, it's back to the metal shop where they will make the necessary additions and modifications.
We're currently engaging in conversations about a new location so that we can get the Tree of Light up as quickly as possible!! Thanks for your continued support!
