No More Concrete Carpet

The past few weeks have been tremendously busy here getting ready for the move – which has unfortunately meant that this blog has had less attention than usual. However, this does mean that we have plenty to talk about! As mentioned in the previous post, our new stained glass window is being produced by Shelagh…

Choosing the Stained Glass and Making an Entrance

The past few weeks at the chapel have seen many changes take place. The plastering is almost complete and as a result the interior is now looking amazing. Outside the ground work is underway and the brick walls making up bin enclosure has been finished. Today, Shelagh Davies came with her assistant, Barrie, to measure…

Another Brick in the Wall

There is a lot of work happening inside the chapel but, as you may have noticed, the exterior is also getting a lot of attention now. More of the aluminium cladding has been fitted, the ground works are underway and the brick enclosure at the front of the building is well on its way to…

A level playing field

It has been a very busy month at the chapel and the pace is continuing to quicken as we approach the end of the year. Last week saw the screed go down on the upper and lower floors which was an unusually rapid process. The screed mix that we opted for was MPA Liquid Screed…

Now you see it – Now you don’t

The Chapel may continue to look the same on the outside to most people, but there is a lot going on inside that you don’t see! Here’s an even closer look . Now you see it – Now you don’t.

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…

Meet Phil

Meet Phil, the Man the Myth the Legend! Phil prefers to stay behind the scenes but we thought it was important to introduce everyone to our extremely talented Site Manager for the Chapel Build. He always has a smile on his face. And isn’t afraid of a little hard work. Austen and Phil have been working…

Porch Life

  Everyone loves a before and after picture and although the porch isn’t finished just yet, we thought we would share a quick update with you. Before :   The dark black pointed frame gave the chapel a much older look and feel than we wanted, so we gave it a small lift.   The board going…

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…

It’s Here!

  The chapel sign has finally arrived! So if you couldn’t find us in Whitchurch before you shouldn’t have any problems now! A rather sizeable 8.5ft tall! Make sure you keep an eye out for us!  

MAYbe the busiest month so far

  With every month that passes, we get busier and busier. May has seen so many different developments, let’s recap a few! Every aspect of the Chapel build gets our full attention, from the garage doors to the colour of the guttering. Water holes were emptied and filled with concrete before the beams and concrete blocks…
