So it has been over a month since I last wrote but buildings are being built, logos are being designed, websites created and as you know from my visit to Avedemil, equipment is being bought.
So, as we left it, we had steels and the best part of a roof. After that, the builders had to dig drainage channels which meant that progress wasn’t hugely visible but was made. Finally however we have concrete on the floors and bits of walls up – brick at the bottom and wooden frames which are going to support traditional dark wood cladding.
As you know I already blogged about visiting Avedemil which was an experience for definite but in a good way. While we wait for our equipment to be delivered, we have also been putting our bursary money to good use by commissioning a website. It’s just a holding page at the moment but with Harry Darby (NYD’s design guru) on our side, we’re hoping for some great things in the future. So far we’ve just decided on our house fonts and incorporated them into the holding site and business cards. Photos are to follow!
In the meantime, I’ve been doing a lot of HACCP. Which, if you’ve done it before, will explain why it’s been a bit quiet on the blog. My head hurts.
