A day without cranes is like a day without sunshine

Richard, Dante, John, Jason, and Denise are hard at work moving the frame for Inigo Manglano-Ovale’s glass house into Building 5. We got a couple of shots of the start of the installation.

We couldn’t ask for better weather high 50s and clear.  No surprise, we lose a lotta heat when that overhead door is open.

They’ve moved in quite a few pieces already.

Once the house is assembled over the next few days, Kapiloff’s Glass will come in and measure and then cut glass to fit.  Dante has been taking a bunch of pictures today. We’ll post them to flickr tomorrow.  Stay tuned.
