Progress with the Renovation - Update for the 30th August
You may have noticed today that the courtyard was a hive of activity. The team from The Green Room School were in building the furniture for the school room (aka the Court House). One of the hand-built items is four one metre tables that can be linked to create one huge one.
If you have been in at all, you will have noticed that the electricians have been working away with the second fixing. Main plugs sockets have been connected up, lights added to the walls and ceilings, some changes made in the ladies, new hand dryers added to the ladies and a lot of work in the school room to get it ready for approaching the new term.
Other work has been going on too. Pete our builder has been really busy with the most obvious sign the addition of the new stable door at the bar.The Gents toilet floor has now been completed; some of the cutting required took the team much longer than expected. We also burned out the electric motor of a specialist tile cutter. However, we are very pleased with the results.
During the week, the girls have been in painting chairs, sanding and oiling tables, evaluating the stock of bench seats. When you are sitting in the courtyard at the BBQ, you are probably sitting in one of their seats.
Work has carried on in the kitchen. Timbers were treated, errant brickwork removed and we were just about to do some remedial work when bang: rot was found. A complete non-load bearing wall has now been removed(it was behind the stainless steel) and we have started treatment.
