The lower balustrades have been progressing towards the finished product slowly, but surely. After the balustrades were fitted together, the brackets were installed by chiseling out part of each balustrade. The quarter round trim, urns, and the top finish rail were then put into place. The scrolls were fitted and the base for them was installed. Last Friday, the corners of the balustrades were fitted with a lead flashing to protect the wood from water dripping off the urns. The balustrades were painted over the weekend and the scrolls will be installed this week, finishing the work to the lower balustrades.
