St. Mary’s Church

St. Mary’s Church

This sanctuary addition to an existing church built in Georgetown, Ohio required metal stud framing of the interior and exterior (over 50’ high at steeple.) We used light gauge metal stud framing with drywall to conceal interior structural steel columns and trusses, creating a decorative effect. The entire exterior was finished with EIFS and manufactured stone custom designed to match the original limestone and mortar of the church.


  • EIFS with drainage above the manufactured stone created a more modern look and worry-free exterior.
  • Coordination of flashing between the EIFS and the manufactured stone was important to maintain a water tight exterior.
  • Cold formed metal framing was used to build a cost-effective, fire-rated altar platform.


What Our Client Had to Say…

Courts Building Systems has been a contractor of ours for many years. On a recent commercial project in Bethel Ohio at St. Mary’s Catholic Church, Courts Building Systems performed the following work for our company: Exterior framing, sheathing and vapor barrier, interior framing and drywall, EIFS and Cultured stone (interior and exterior). It was very helpful to have these different trades all supplied by one contractor. Jeff Courts and his crews were very knowledgeable on all the flashing and waterproofing details that were needed on the EIFS and cultured stone work. This was reassuring to have a contractor that paid close attention to detail, something you don’t always see today. Courts Building Systems has been and will continue to be a preferred contractor of Hudepohl Construction for years to come.
