Update for the 21st May, 2021
The long hours spent stripping wire by the dedicated team of 'strippers' has paid off. With the price of copper currently very high Lexie made a profitable trip to the scrap yard this week. All the copper, and lead, that has been painstakingly extracted from all parts of the building by a host of willing volunteers has raised a fantastic total of £2,332:40! A massive thank you to all those involved.
When the team weren't clearing out the scrap metal, they were finishing off in The School Room. If you remember from previous weeks, they had rejigged the framework around the chimney breast and new ventilator, and now put on the fireboard and are re-instating the wooden panelling. Painting was undertaken too. It's newarly done!
After clearing out the scrap metal, the team could have a look at some of the rafters in the ceiling. Unfortunately the bad news is that it looks like some of the timbers are rotten and will need replaced when we start phase 3 of the renovation. This has probably been due to a leak from the bathroom above.
