All the flags are flying half mast today for Good Friday. Week 7 has been a 3 day working week as Easter Thursday and of course Good Friday are both public holidays here.
However in 3 days the Post House has changed quite dramatically, the large open space has now been divided into the two apartments.
Monday and Tuesday saw the framework for the walls erected.
In some ways it is a shame to lose the large expanse, whilst it would have been nice to have only one large open plan apartment, in the long term this was not a good financial option for me. All in all I think we utilised and allocated the space well for the two holiday self-catering units and I think it is working out nicely. One apartment is slightly larger than the other but this was the best option for the overall layout.
Inside the front door there is a small entry way which provides access to each apartment and there is enough room for me to provide local tourist brochures and information along one wall
This is the sleeping area of the smaller apartment, the camera view is through what will be a wall, where the ensuite bathroom will be. This is not a very large space, although this pic makes it look smaller than it is, it does only need to take a queen bed and bedside cabinets. There is plenty of space outside this area for wardrobe and cupboard space.
One of the doorway openings to the gallery has been cemented closed.
Inside the gallery/retail area the original staff kitchen has been reduced in size and partitioned off to create more retail floor space
There has been 4-5 guys working away each day
and I must say the pace is cracking along nicely.
