And last night I had a phone call from the contractor to say that he expects that all the roofing & associated work should be finished by next Wednesday.
So I had a trip up to Bolsover this morning to see for myself,where we were at.
And indeed work has really gone on at a pace in the last week. The 'workshop' is now completely re-tiled & watertight, for probably the first time in many years.
And the single storey building is re-tiled, and the final bit - the 'Gallery' is stripped bare & is beginning to be re-tiled too.
Add to that the rebuilding of the chimney, that almost fell off during the week, and the bits of re-pointing that have been done as work has progressed, and I can see that we are definitely on schedule.
Meantime, elsewhere, the quote has been received for all the doors & windows, and should soon be landing in my 'inbox' very soon, meaning that we can sign off on that & get that underway.
And as well as all that, I had a meeting yesterday with the Town Clerk of Old Bolsover Town Council, and agreed that we will work together on promoting OBY as a new & exciting addition to the town's tourist activity & add value to the economic development of the small business community with the craft workshops.
I agreed with the Town Clerk, that we would have a presence at the forthcoming Food & Drink Festival in July, to promote OBY. So get ready for the banners & balloons!!
After all that excitement this week, I feel a need for a 'lie down in a darkened room!!'
Keep watching out for more updates on progress, and I will leave you with a few pictures, taken this morning, showing 'work in progress'! - including the chimney!
