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.

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.
