Wardens / Crew building Update
Work is continuing on the warden’s side of the development, the studded walls are completed, insulated and first plasterboard panels fixed. Vinyl covered boards are due for delivery Thursday 15th March, and fixing will commence shortly afterwards. Electrical wiring for lights, sockets, and fire alarm has been routed, fixing of switches, sockets, and sensors will take place after the boards are fixed. All door surrounds are in place, and doors will be fixed shortly.
Externally the Yorkshire stone wall to the reception was completed Tuesday 13th March, the window frames in rosewood / white finish interior are in manufacture along with rosewood double doors, we are anticipating fitting to take place by w/e 23rd March. After fitting the angular roof will be added to the existing roof fixed earlier in 2011, and then the ribbed tiled roofing from ‘ Small Earth ‘ which matches other buildings on site will be applied.
Once the above is completed we will be building studded walls for the reception office and crew toilet / disable toilet / shower area, and then install central heating boiler and electric consumer board.
The next part will be getting the service trench dug out again to a suitable depth by machine ( hurray !! ) and installing trunking for the gas and water along with soil pipe for the waste which will connect to the rest of the Blackhills system.
We welcome offers of assistance for this project, or indeed any projects on site, if interested please contact John Reynolds on 07710 548523 or [email protected]
Whilst we cannot give a completion date at present, we will try to keep you informed of progress, or indeed feel free to visit the site, or the Bradford North Scout Shop on Saturday mornings. We need volunteers to warden still for the coming season, even though accommodation will still be in the caravan at present. Any offers please direct to Jacqueline on 0845 094 8894
