It's all taking shape so fast!
I missed a visit to Te Takere last week so this week it was exciting to see the framework for that first Waka panel in situ. They told me it was big - it is - and the other frames are laid out on the floor in position waiting to be bolted upright so we could imagine how beautiful the curved line of panels is going to look.
The panels for the opposite side are lying down on their sides at the other side of what will become the large open centre space. Now we can get a feel for just how spacious that area is going to be. Wow!
The framing for the new returns room is up and it too has a lovely curved wall. So much nicer than straight lines. Probably a bit of a pain for the builders but I'm sure the end result will be worth it.
The painting and decorating is well under way with much of the plasterwork being done. The firewall next to the mall has been painted as have all of the high steel trusses.
