Here's the layout of Notre Dame Cathedral. The exterior structure of the monument has been preserved

I have heard conflicting reports about the status of the Rose windows (I recall staring at them for hours years ago when I wished Paris). Some say they melted but heard more recently they were saved.



Here's the layout of Notre Dame Cathedral. The exterior structure of the monument has been preserved, according to officials https://www.washingtonpost.com/world/europe/pariss-notre-cathedral-is-on-fire/2019/04/15/c487906e-5fa1-11e9-bf24-db4b9fb62aa2_story.html

2. Basically, the stone isn't going anywhere.

At least, that is how it seems to me.

I was reading that 800 years ago, they used 300-400 year old trees in making the structure - some of which supported the roof. Not something available anymore.

"To kick off the project, workers cleared 21 hectares of oak. Each beam of the intricate wooden cross-work was drawn from a different tree: estimated at 13,000 trees in total."

3. 300-400 year old Oak Trees at that.

Oak trees take forever to grow big.

4. Thanks for posting the layout

I've never been there to see it and this helps me visualize it.
