Interesting that this announcement should be made almost exactly 10 years
(+/- a couple of months) after the "official" completion of the vaulted
SBH of the late Lou Harrison that was built by the Skillful Meany and his
cronies in California.


or if the above link gets broken:


If this trend continues, should we not expect to see a Code-approved  
vaulted SBH in the UK until 2022 ?(since we all know that the UK typically  
lags behind Germany in technical matters, despite whatever Mr. Bean tries  
to insinuate) ?
