Late April 2007: The Gable and the Cornice Blocks

We had to make up a cement based patch material to fill the area that did not meet properly.

Counterweighting Cornice Detail view of using counterweight on the cornice

It is difficult to install the cornice blocks since so much of the weight is on the outside, you have to figure out some way to stabilize them. The concrete block that is hanging is a counter-weight until the interior of the block is poured w/ backfill.
