Moving Forward with the Mushroom Wedding Arch

Bringing Home the Cement

The cement company came through with their replacement sacks of cement. It was quite a journey bringing them over the mountain to the property.

I am stranded without a vehicle.  My friend, Lorna Sides, offered her VW Turbo to go and pick up the cement. For the past few months she has been in the market looking for a car.  So she did not really purchase a car to haul the cement but at the end of the day it looked pretty close to that.

In the parking lot of the Honda dealership, and after many hours of going though the long process of purchasing her new car, we transferred half of the 750 lbs of cement from the very low riding VW to her new Honda. Those car guys must have thought we were absolutely crazy as they watched these two little ladies putting all those sacks of cement into the back of her new car. Together with both cars loaded with cement we caravanned back over the mountain with our haul.

Turning the Top Section of the Mushroom Wedding Arch

A week later a friend came by and rigged a come a long winch so we could lift  the top section of the Mushroom Wedding Arch and re-position it face upward on the work table in the shop.


The next step is to finish the final coat of cement on the front side of the top section.

Detailing the Side Panels of the Mushroom Wedding Arch


The side panels are being detailed in the carving shop, which is really the goat barn in the winter months. They are almost ready to be attached to the foam uprights which cover the armature.  Once these panels are attached in place the first layer of cement will finally be applied.

The goal is complete the Arch before the before the weather turns cold.
