Are the turrets at the ends of the roof of the Westfassade coming back or not?

This question has been asked again and again in this forum, and each time the answer has been a disappointing NO. The turrets are not in the current plans for the palace, but that does not mean they won't be reconstructed at some point in the future. I certainly hope they are.

Construction Progress

Currently, I can't detect any work in progress on the exterior of the building. Some places, like the portals on the north side, they seem to have just stopped wherever they were in their work. Maybe, the workmen are enjoying that old European custom of the August vacation.

Work Resumed

I think that I was right. The work has resumed on the exterior in at least four different locations. The August vacations must be over for the workmen.

Good Joe, I hated to see you so stressed out!

Progress???

I'm not stressed. However, I am a little surprised. On big jobs like this one it is common practice in America to have penalties for not completing work on time but it is also common to have bonuses for completing early. If the exterior work is finished ahead of schedule, we would normally expect to see work start on the stucco now, not wait until it is scheduled in October or whenever it calls for it in the plan. This hardly looks like traditional German efficiency.

It is alright Joe! All is sunshine!
After noticing that there is no update, I will jump in for that.
About Your question: The works are on schedule, actually they are two weeks ahead. The same counts for the money. The stucco/Putz can and will not be applied for the cause of drying the massive wall. The drying out of all mortar moisture will take 12 months, preferable more. There is exterior stone work in good progress, as you will see in the following pictures.........enjoy!

The crown above portal IV is close to be finished;




The cupola is moving mostly inside. The outside became a load of stone, too;




This is portal II looking to the inner portal IV


Between portal II and IV inside will look like this:




The stone masons are laying stone on the portals inside, that is why we saw little movement


This is portal III. The windows are coming in;


And our ugly duckling;


This building on the left will get a facelift next. I do not know if the roofline gets reconstructed:







pictures from APH member Vulgow, thanks!

Thank you

Eagle:

Thank you for all of the photos. Great update on progress on the palace. It's wonderful to have access to this level of detail about the project.
