Rooms for Improvement

With the steel beams being placed downstairs, you can really see the shape of the rooms come to life and start to imagine each one fully equipped and ready for business. But if you still can’t quite see it yet, take a look at the pictures below for some inspiration. And in each steel beamed room… With…

The Workshop

If you look at the Chapel build from a Birdseye view, it’s shaped like a T. The Top of the T is actually where our workshop will be and it has certainly seen a lot of developments in the past week. The roof has  come such a long way internally and externally. You can see…

Cobwebbed Chapel

One of the local residences of Whitchurch, Noel Privett, sent in this absolutely beautiful picture he captured one dewy morning. We absolutely love it! In fact we aren’t the only ones as it was featured in the Silk Mill Calendar for the month of July!   Isn’t it wonderful! If you have captured any pictures of the…

Remote controlled Crane

Ever seen a remote controlled Crane before?     The trick was to find a small enough crane to be able to manoeuvre the beam but also be strong enough to carry it up, with the beam weighing in at nearly 300 Kilos we had to make sure we got it right!

All that soil has to go somewhere..   We are thankful April came with a new roof !…

Roof Roof

The main Chapel roof is on, and in only one day! How you ask? By using Nulok roofing system! Firstly Nulok battens are fixed to the rafters in the conventional way, replacing traditional timber battens. Then specially designed Link Channels are snap fitted to the battens to form an interlocking grid system. And finally our slates are slotted…

March Madness

March has certainly been a busy month! We’ve had rain, we’ve had sun, windows have been put in, tiles have been delivered, holes made and much more…     Early March, people on the roof insulating and securing it. Ian inside the roof with a hammer and bolster cutting bricks, repairing the brickwork inside.   Worker’s digging…

What goes up…

Can’t come down.   One way of getting the slates up to the roof! Can’t wait to see what it looks like when it’s all done, let’s hope we don’t get a sudden downpour of rain..
