Update for the 19th February, 2021

Time to start putting it back together! The Weekday Warriors have been joined by the 'brickies' who have started rebuilding the walls to secure the steel beam and new lintels over the doorways.

The wall at the back of The Kitchen is being rebuilt by our contractors.

Next the fireplace wall will be completed, and the pipe work for services are being planned out before the floor is filled and laid. The plan for the kitchen has moved forward significantly and initial drawings look exciting.

A huge thank you to Steve and his team at Permagard for their incredibly generous reduction in prices for the damp proof membrane kits required for our kitchen install. They were so supportive of the project and have offered their assistance with any advice we may need.

Watch for this to be used in the next week or so as the rebuild of The Kitchen progresses.
