Designer visits site
Our Gatehouse designer and Lord of the Rings Oscar-winning (I love that bit) production designer, Dan Hennah, came to visit on Wednesday and is impressed with the progress.
He promised to come back for the Gatehouse opening.
We have put Dan’s Gatehouse design on the front cover of our 2012- 2013 Matamata Community Directory.
I am enjoying the 6.30am starts to let the boys in to the building to hook up to power. You can get a lot of work done between 6.30 and 9am.
Darren Roa and his boys are working on the windows and the roof line is very apparent now.
The boys did take time off on Thursday to meet Kimberley Crossman, ex- Shortland Street actor. Kimberley will be one of our MCs at the ‘‘Party Field’ on November 29.
The brick guys are working with the specially-made concrete bricks.
You will soon see their work above the hoardings.
Oh, and Di Romley did come back to clean more windows. This time she brought Bruce (on his day off) and got him out on the scaffolding to do the outside of the windows.
The windows will soon be covered with what I can only describe as oldstyle wiggly-looking glass, so I am enjoying the view from my sparking clean windows while I can.
If you have driven past the i-SITE you would have noticed the Gatehouse is really starting to take shape.
