Update on 11 Hallikeld Close

August 17th, 2016

Slow, very slow progress, since my June update.  Basically, it’s just been a staircase that meets building regulations and finishing off the mezzanine floor. But the white food-grade walls were delivered today from Hemsec Panel Technologies, so the new tea-packing room should constructed by Friday.  All we’ll then be waiting for is to complete the […]
