Well after a long time, we are almost over the Finish Line.
The Ramps and railings ar now complete. The Drainage is finished.
We have now applied to Council for our Final Inspection for our Occupancy Certificate to be issued.
Unfortunately, I have been struck down by the dreaded Shingles and will be out of action for some time.
Larry Lloyd has done a remarkable job throughout the Project and is to be commended for his efforts.
