Limestone Trim Replacement at Carthrage Buildings I, II and III:

The CSI Team was selected to help correct the original construction of the three Carthrage Buildings at Woodlawn Cemetery.

The windows and limestone surrounds were not originally installed per their strict guidelines, and the angles of both the limestone and windows did not line up properly.

To address the issue, the CSI team removed the limestone bands at the windows. Each window within the three octagonal buildings was measured and individually cut to fit around the existing stained glass windows, which were not square.

The new limestone surrounds at the jambs and sills were larger than the original, and the header stone was redesigned to be triangular-shaped and provide a better appearance at the head of the windows. The existing stones on the fa├žade were removed and cut to fit around the new redesigned limestone units.
