Below, this is the huge loft space. Standing in what will be the main plant room, looking though the PC Archive, through the hall space, with the stairs and small plant room at the end.
| Coming through the loft to the top of the stairs, lovingly crafted by Neil. This whole staircase will be plasterboarded for fire safety, with a door at the bottom, and a store cupboard underneath. |
This is the staircase viewd from below, and in the background is the first of Dan's brick walls that will form the lobby.(Sorry, Dan)
Outside view, now that windows and security shutters are installed. The building is now weathertight and secure, save for the ventilation pipe openings.
