Before pictures - pretty grim
Up at The Building on Mayfield Terrace, the renovation of three former toilets (if thats what you could call them!) has finally been completed.
The rooms will become offices and practice rooms for the Music Project which is based at the Building; drop-ins and lessons happen in the afternoons during the week.
The rooms initially had no floors - well they did but they were completely rotten and very easy to fall through! The walls and ceiling were damp and crumbling and there was no heat or light. The place was very smelly, dirty and just generally not fit for anyone or anything - it was known as the 'condemned end' of the Building.
Thanks to an amazing, dedicated and hard-working team they have been transformed. The majority of the work has been done by young people and young adults on the RD project - learning new skills and having fun while working hard! Big thank you to:
The saturday RD team of Jamie, Nathan, Bartosz, Jason for ripping out all the old stuff; Chris and Stefan for their building work; John F for all the plastering in the cold; Gareth for all his hard work (bodging) in the cold; John P for all the painting - also in the cold; the monday evening RD team of Shannon, Jamie and Liv for laying the floors; and Rob for electrics and generally everything too skillful for anyone else (mmm!)
The rooms are great and we're really looking forward to using them with young people - giving us more space to practice music and enable more people to be involved.
After pictures - light, bright and clean
