As you will have seen, the decorators are making good progress with the redecoration of the interior common parts. The work got off to a slightly slower start than we had hoped as the workmen found an unexpectedly large number of layers of painted lining paper and lacquered wallpaper which took a good deal of scraping/blasting to remove.
There’ll be more information in a few days but here’s the state of play at the moment:
- Flats 47-54 Stairccase complete except for 6 front doors
- Flats 74-83 Final painting works in progress
- Flats 84-93 Final painting works in progress
- Flats 1-46 Complete stripping in progress
From 18 – 27 October, the contractors will be preparing and lining all blocks. From 27 October, decoration will proceed for flats 1-49.
The new light fittings, to include emergency lighting and light sensor & the new carpet have been ordered. We’ll give you another update as soon as possible. Thanks for your patience.
In the meantime, we’d be really interested if anyone can date/identify the Edwardian wallpaper uncovered during the redecorations. Drop us a line at firstname.lastname@example.org or leave a reply below.
