Conversion of our EDUCATION BUILDING INTO A PERMANENT structure

We are very fortunate to have received a LEADER grant to turn our education building into a permanent, independent building. This severs the building from the main house and attaches all amenities to the mains. At the same time there will be some internal restructuring to the building, adding a kitchen and office space

 

Regular updates and photos will be posted in this page.

 

The building is finished. We're pleased with how it looks

 

The building works have finished and we're delighted with the result. We've loved using it so far.

The cladding has gone on and the building looks wonderful, even in the snow at the beginning of February. Just a few more weeks and then it's completed.

Roof and cladding going on. Looks very different and we're excited for when it is finished

The builders have been hard at work. New walls going in to divide the new kitchen and office.  

 

They'll put another wall in to separate the kitchen and Tyler Room.

Not just the outside that is being done. Some of the internal walls have gone down. 


It's Friday 10th November and after 5 days work loads has been done. 

 

Ditches dug and pipes have been laid, enabling the building to be independent. Waste pipes moved and walls removed to allow for the internal restructuring.

Pipe works to join through the mains. Trench goes across the orchard to the mains on the road

This is the building just before work began on Monday 6th November 2017.  Good weather for the builders to begin their work
