I'm thinking he wasn't so much of a genius. Maybe his liability insurance will cover it.

It could be smart and cheap after the visitor fees are factored in.

Would agree with that. There's not much protection for a lot of the masonry from the roof in most of the building.
I notice a USA charity has donated a lot of $ towards the restoration.

Or at least he would tell us he could. I do enjoy his rhetoric and his delivery and his honesty. By that I mean,have been reading his stuff since he started 20 some years ago contributing to the trade publications. By his honesty I mean;he had a major snafu on his own office building renovation /conversion. They actually had the gumption to do a follow up in FHB after the fact.Kudos to him !

Yeah, I do custom shower doors and my own shower door is a 40 year old bifold. I've never taken a shower behind a nice shower door unless it was a hotel.

A good supply of Scotch solves that problem.
