The construction of a granary is a key project in the continuous improvements that we are making on the mill site.
We have reached a significant milestone in the construction of the granary with the completion of the roof
When the cladding is complete there is further work to be done by fixing battens, insulation, and glass in the windows before finishing with weather board and painting.
Rose Connor has been a reliable and conscientious volunteer who has worked with us since Jan 2013 and the mill site would not be in the good condition that it currently is, without her input. Rose is moving to a different area and we will miss her help and her company. A gift voucher, that she can use when she settles into her new house, was presented to her and we wish her all the best for the future.
The right hand side of “Fort Knox” has been dismantled and the engine has been covered over, until the new engine shed has been built around it. We hope to complete the new shed by August 2016 utilising our volunteers.
The original internal dividing wall of “Fort Knox” made of flattened oil cans, can be seen. This wall will become a feature in the new engine shed.
A close up clearly shows, how the once square Castrol oil cans, have been cut and flattened to form the dividing wall
Another significant milestone in the overall improvement of the site
