Since ‘blogging’ last, the pavilion has changed dramatically. Outwardly it looks like a complete building site, but inside work is progressing fast. There is order amongst the seeming chaos, as Peter Heinemeier– and his happy band of workers – cheerfully showed me.
One aspect that particularly impressed me was their emphasis on using local labour and local materials, recycling wherever possible.
Two interesting discoveries have been a large oak beam, dated 1907, brought in by puffer from Glasgow; and a timber beam dated 1923.
The plan is for the 1st phase to be completed later this month. Next on the list is the construction of the front glass extension – quotes are being explored.
Exciting times – Well done Peter, and your gang.
