New Shingles Placed on Stave Church Gallery During Refurbishment in EPCOT

Since the Stave Church Gallery refurbishment began in March, about half of the removed shingles have been replaced on the EPCOT building.

When we last shared an update, the first-floor roof on this side of the building was almost completely lacking shingles. There was just one new row on the right side. Now that side is almost completely covered in gray shingles.

There is exposed brown sheathing where shingles are still missing, mostly around the gable roof. Shingles at the corners have been cut to fit the roof. Along the bottom edge of the roof is light brown wood that hasn’t yet been painted to match the shingles.

Compare the unpainted wood to the edge of the roof on another side of the building. It’s painted the same color gray as the shingles.

There’s also a cover on this corner awaiting new gray paneling.

Along the top of the gabled roof are strips of gray that resemble shingles but are actually flat. These will eventually be removed or covered.

The left side of the first-floor roof is still lacking shingles. After this section of roof is fully replaced, crews may move to the other sides of the building and to the higher roofs.

Located in the Norway Pavilion of EPCOT, the Stave Church is home to the Gods of Vikings exhibit. Inside, guests can explore the history of Viking deities like Thor, Odin, Loki, and Freya.
