After a painful 3 months of nail biting, towel throwing and ceiling staring (at one point we actually gave up), we have movement: Architect is now drawing up plans for improved fire escape to meet stringent regulations. We have also been given the go-ahead to begin work on the exterior of the building which will start at end of July.
We are currently 6 months behind schedule so obviously we will not be open this summer as billed.
We will keep in touch.
