The new municipal courthouse in London is shaping up on the inside, but will not be complete until October, officials said this week.


The hard winter and an apparent miscalculation in the roof set the project back from earlier estimates of its completion date, according to Commissioner Mark Forrest.


After it was discovered the roof was initially designed without a pitch, it had to be re-drawn. While the roof figures were finalized, snow and rain literally fell into the interior of the building. It took quite some time for the moisture to leave the building, Forrest said.


Workers from Ohio Valley Paint of Dayton spent Monday busily staining literally thousands of board feet of oak a tawny, wild cherry hue. It’s a lengthy process from applying the stain and sealer and, when it’s installed, giving it a coat of varnish.


The courthouse is located at the corner of Oak and West Fourth streets.
