Perryville, MO Mausoleum

A mausoleum... This is for sure one space I never in a million years thought I would ever be designing. This is a new concept for Perryville, but the concept has been around for centuries. Mt. Hope Cemetery already has one mausoleum and the one I'll be helping the committee with will make their second. 

Thanks to Dave Richardet, from Richardet Floor Covering, he picked up on the fact they needed some assistance selecting and pulling together the interior and exterior finishes and threw my name out there. 

I met with three members of the committee last week. They went over the finishes that they have selected so far, the options I had to chose from, the materials that still need to be discovered, the subs working on the project and the look they're going for.   

Although a small project, this is a new and exciting challenge. All of the surfaces thus far are hard and have no sound absorption; so sound dampening finishes will seriously need to be taken into consideration and implemented tastefully.
