Renovations Diary: 26th April, 2019
The volunteers and professionals have been really busy inside the main bar this week. The toilets are now ready for plastering which is really good news. However, the footings that have been dug out do need to be extended further - at this rate we will hit China but we will do as we are told.
The electricians have done the initial wiring for The School Room upstairs. At various times this room has been a living room, a courthouse, a function room and much more. This was the first fitting with much more to follow.
The rotten part of the interior stairs to The School Room have being replaced. This will allow us to progress but we will need to monitor these as our rot treatments continue. Yes, we have rot in various places and we are washing and spraying and washing and ... you get the idea. Fingers crossed.
The front window frames in the bar and the first bedroom have been prepared with paint stripper. This is very much a first pass and will require a lot more work from the volunteers. There are decades of old paint to be removed. Ever wish you hadn't started something?
And yes, we had a delivery of raw materials too. Nice to see new stuff coming in that will allow us to put the place back together again. So far it has been skip load and skip load of debris that has been removed. Have we turned the corner?
