According to the Salt Lake Tribune the Ogden temple is getting a major makeover.

So here are some questions for you Mormon Mentality readers:

How lonely will the Provo temple feel after this?

Nothing against the new temples that have been built recently, but do all the Utah temples really need to look the same?

Finally, if it is going to cost the same as it would to tear it down and build a new one, is there a reason why that isn’t happening? The article indicates that the original building was something of an experiment in terms of lower quality construction. My understanding is that we’ve given up on that experiment. Why not just build a completely new building?
