Progress with the Renovation - Update for the 12th July
After getting the go ahead from the building inspector, the priority was to get the steels and pillars prepared and then plasterboarded. There was a lot to do and took both the building team and a lot of volunteers. Pete was a star and was patient with lots of questions about what and how to do it.
The two doors that will be removed needed prepared. This involved the process of "toothing out" the existing brickwork so that the new bricks could tie in and provide strength. This is the first, and possibly hardest, task as the guys had to be careful not break any existing brickwork.
Frank the electrician is nearly finished his "first fixings" for the bar area. This means most of the cables have been put in place but are not yet connected up. There are miles and miles of cables that have now been installed covering lighting, security, fire, audio, video, safety, etc
In the background Scott the plumber has been working away. He has been hidden in the cellar for part of the time putting supplies and getting ready for the bar to be put in. He has also been putting in the supply for the school room for the small kitchen area.
