Changes

Well it’s March now and what a start to the year for so many of us here in Hebden Bridge! If you’ve been following this blog you will know what’s been happening at Heart Gallery so thought it was time for a wee update my friends.

My hubby couldn't resist chipping off Gallery so that it said ALI for me!

The building was officially declared dry nearly two weeks ago so it’s frustrating that our insurers have yet to appoint the contractors despite tenders having been in to them on time. In the meantime the only person doing any work on site is my lovely hubby, Bart.

Because some structural damage was found that could potentially have been fatal resulting in the house upstairs perhaps ending up in the gallery we’ve had to make tough decisions.

One of those decisions has been to remove the internal shop front so that a new retaining wall and buttresses can be built once work eventually starts.

going, going, gone!

going, going, gone!

 

We are happy that we managed to get it out in the right sections ready to head to its new home at Radiator Renovator in Halifax as we will have unlimited visiting rights!

Please dip back into the Heart Gallery blog soon for another update on how we are stitching Heart back together again, thank you. x
