The Big Move

With our move to the Tapestry looming, we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.

We’ve chosen the contractor to do the fit-out, and they’re confident it’ll only take a couple of weeks to get all the work done.  There was also another meeting with the electrician to finalise the details for the socket positions, rings needed, etc.

We’ve got a date for when the Internet goes live at the Tapestry, which is March 19th.

While we still haven’t formally received the keys, we have got access to start moving things over.  Obviously this will be the non-essential stuff at first, as we can’t move properly until after our fit-out, but expect the rallying of people to carry and drive vans to start soon!

There are lots of things to do, both with the move and in preparation for the move. If you want to help out, check the DoES Move The Tapestry label on the Somebody Should issue list, or get in touch.

The Big Move

With our move to the Tapestry looming, we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.

We’re up to five quotes for the fit-out, so should be making a decision on that soon.  One of the factors feeding into that decision is how much money we can spend on it, and on that note, there’s been some good discussion about the crowdfunding campaign over on the Google group (and still a bit of time if anyone wants to chime in and help).

The landlord’s refurbishment works aren’t finished but are still progressing.  The walls and flooring changes for the toilets on our floor are finished, so there’s just the plumbing work to do there.  We should get the keys from the landlord by the end of this month.

There are lots of things to do, both with the move and in preparation for the move. If you want to help out, check the DoES Move label on the Somebody Should issue list, or get in touch.

The Big Move

With our move to the Tapestry looming, we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.

We’ve got three quotes for the fit-out now, and the newer quotes are looking more affordable.  As you’ll have seen from Helen’s post to the Google Group, we’re looking at how to raise the cash to help cover the cost of that with some crowd-funding, so please let us know if you can help.

The landlord’s works at the Tapestry are coming along, but not yet finished.  They were busy fitting out the toilets when we last visited.

And we’re also taking advantage of people having moved out of our current building.  As we’ll have more space to fill in the new space, we’re collecting more (and better) furniture from some of the empty offices.  There’s more dismantling and carrying still to do if you want to get some practice in before the big move…

The Big Move

With our move to the Tapestry looming, we’re including a brief update on how things are going each week.

We’ve had another quote for the fit-out work, and are still chasing down the third (plus a couple of people have mentioned some other options that we can pursue if we need to). This second quote is more promising than the first, but still more than we’ve got in the reserves. So we’re looking at how to resolve that too.

Over at the new building, things are getting more active. The landlord’s work on our floor is wrapping up, with the electrics being the main job outstanding now. And yesterday one of neighbours here in Gostins, MD Productions, finished moving into the Tapestry (where they’ll be closer neighbours on the floor below) and had their launch party.

It feels like we’re coming to the end of the calm before the storm that will be the move itself.
