Moving units etc.

Well, did the shut down today. Running prints right up 'til the last ...machine was still hot as I wheeled it to the loading bay.

Should be Monday when I'm back into production at the new site. Still got to complete a full strip down of the whole unit. Signs on the side being one of the biggies.

Took me all day today to pack up 95% of my dept....and take out the CCTV, wall heaters and still have time to feed a really cheeky little crow that came a-visiting.

Front door was open - so in it trundled with a high pitched swawk. Spotted a couple of jelly beans near the vending machine and took them out side. Still not satisfied, in it comes again - demanding to be fed properly.

I took a pack of rolls from the kitchen - and gave him & his shy mates breakfast....it came back at 4:30....so near enough handed him a piece of bread...just that last foot that was out of bounds. Crows...gotta love 'em.

I digressed. Moving across town to North Isla Street. Boss bought an reclamation yard, sheds & office block...it was a total hole.
One shed is looking great after it's refit....muggins here was volunteered to run all of the cable tray, SWA & air lines.

I'm getting more space at the new place - most of the upper floor of the office block. However...there is at present no lower floor...just a hole in the ground. Will be 4-5 weeks before I can move in properly...and 6-7 weeks to complete the bottom offices.

So informed I'm "in a portacabin" for the time being...should be fun...not.

Pics to follow as it all comes together.

Rather you than me David. I would dread having to move again.

Good luck with it, and I look forward to seeing the pictures.

When we were looking for new premises last year I almost took a shed of a unit on. Having now experienced what you need to do when moving I am glad we didn't.

Having said that I wish you all the best and hope it works well for you.

Cheers

Moved out of the portacabin last Thurday...well off schedule.

So now have a cosy 12x6m workshop / office. Woo hoo...but it's upstairs and getting big panels in & out is a pain. Mind you - did load the ENTIRE contents through the window on a forklift...40 odd rolls of vinyl & 54" Cadet included...

Will post some pics.
