Construction Progress... and we're off!

For a building that was erected in the late 1800's and received little (okay nothing) in the way of maintenance in its recent history... it is remarkably solid with buckets of character!

While the construction is mostly in structural upgrades to the existing structure, we're planning to expose and refresh what is already there, in all its natural, historic glory.

We're getting close to this structural phase being completed before we get moving on the rest. We'll be organising working bee's for anyone who can help us, we've got plenty to do and we know heaps of people have offered to help (seriously... thank you!)

In the meantime, this building and our work is being well looked after by these three blokes. Between them, decades of experience in building and timber and plenty of laughs onsite.
