Soldiering on

Well we've worked through our options and the best way forward is for us to manage this project ourselves, keeping on the sub-contractors already involved with the project.  So buoyed up with community energy and support we hope to get this thing over the line before we all die of thirst!  So work has continued over recent days with brick splitting , mezzanine floorboard laying  and sarking lining of the courtyard being the main activities - see photos below.  We hope to see bricklayers back on site this week after they were distracted by another job (!) and the electricians are crawling al

Ruben's Joinery

A sneaky look into our carpenter's workshop near Springston: the back bar for the Hororata horseshoe bar counter is taking shape, recycled (of course) timbers are replacing the old melamine carcass.  Just the countertop to go, then all will need to be dismantled to transport to The Laboratory and be reconstructed on site.  Although that's a little way off yet.

The brickies are starting to get to the cool detail parts of the job (photos cunningly taken so you can't see too much of the mess all around!)  Double hung sash windows in the main bar await final inspection and finishing off with wooden beading.  Window sills still 'work in progress'
