The Banchory Men’s Shed is built.
The final building work was complete at the beginning of this week and the final items, being the fire detectors and hook-ups to the Legion’s fire detection and alarm system, were complete on Thursday.
On the Tuesday, our high-tech sink, water heater, and even more high-tech combined sink plug / strainer / overflow were figured out, risk-assessed and commissioned by our resident ex-Drilling Engineer, who shall remain nameless, under the watchful eye of our resident ex-Process Engineer, who shall also remain nameless.
All was successful and Tuesday’s cups were duly washed up – in hot water! – luxury – and left to dry. Some problems were however encountered with commissioning the new-fangled tea-towel technology, which, not having been washed beforehand simply shed fluff all over the carefully-washed up mugs.
Having been finally emptied just before, on Friday the blue shipping container was finally taken away by a happy Fife farmer, prior to the expiry of its temporary planning permission.
So the Shed is almost ready for occupation – we just need to get final certification and to notify Aberdeenshire Council.
Thanks to everyone.
On Monday we will start painting the ceiling and walls, please come along and help – the premises will be opened starting 9:00 a.m.
