Seems like a waste of money if they are going to sell the thing. They'll never get $25,000 for that organ without the blower and other components. I don't guess giving them some estimates of its worth from reputable builders would do any good, huh?     At 08:10 PM 1/8/2002 -0800, you wrote: >The short version: the organ committee voted tonight to sell the Moller. >*I* thought the meeting was to sign the Design Agreement with Holtkamp. >Oh well. > >Bud > > >"Pipe Up and Be Heard!" >PipeChat: A discussion List for pipe/digital organs & related topics >HOMEPAGE : http://www.pipechat.org >List: mailto:pipechat@pipechat.org >Administration: mailto:admin@pipechat.org >Subscribe/Unsubscribe: mailto:requests@pipechat.org

(back) Subject: Re: our organ project (X-posted) From: <quilisma@socal.rr.com> Date: Wed, 09 Jan 2002 08:19:02 -0800   We've got about $17K into the Moller ... purchase, removal, storage for a year ... plus about $35K into building the organ loft in the new church.   Here's a curiosity ... in storage, disassembled, we've got it insured for $300K, which admittedly is high-end for replacing an organ of 11 ranks, = but why is it that if it DID burn or something and had to be replaced, even = for a low-end figure ... oh, say $200K ... around $20K per stop ... it's worth = less than $25K on the open market?   Among other things, getting rid of the Moller makes me look like an = absolute FOOL for getting it in the first place. A year ago, all concerned agreed = it was a good "start" to our organ project. Evidently nobody looked beyond a year as far as money to store it (the money for that was raised along with the money to purchase and remove it), though I think that's a red herring too. God knows this church could continue to afford $400 a month, though, = as I pointed out, at some point that eats up the savings of buying it and re-using at least the pipes.   Cheers,     Bud   Tommy Becnel wrote:   > Didn't they pay to have the Moller removed from the church and stored > professionally.

Yes there are some E. M. Skinner stops, and you'll probably recognize them on your own. To say the least, this is a very complete organ, Home or otherwise. Mr. Mollema lives in Scotts, Michigan. If you are in the area you might want to give him a call to see the organ. You could say the house is built around the organ, or is it the other way around? I guess it could be either way. The work is stunningly beautiful. Oh! To be Bill's neice or nephew!   Regards,   Ron Severin
