Organ installation begins as a new chest for the 16’ Open Wood - six pipes per the routed toe holes - is prepared in the chamber's northeast corner. Note the walls and floor: cleaned, repaired, painted with a reflective gloss, made electrically safe with new line and conduit. The low octave of the 16’ Dulciana is returned to its home while builders “look up” to the Swell division in preparation for wiring and pipes.
