… week four …
This week we were greeted by colour, almost finished bathrooms including showers and toilets, glossed doorways and a white entrance and shelving in both the back store-room where the washer/dryer will be and in our dry store cupboard.

… week three – we have toilets! …
There has been a lot of work going on over the last week. Both the left store cupboard and office have been full decorated and carpeted which meant a busy day for us on Monday! We were storing everything in the right office which now needs to be decorated, so Monday involved moving everything from one office to the other.
In other news we now have 2 showers, 2 new toilets and a new drainage system ready for our washing machine and dryer! Not the most exciting of updates but it’s great to see the how quickly and efficiently the builders are working.

… week two – we have colour! …
We are so excited about these plans it’s difficult not popping our heads in every day to see the progress. We left it a week this time and yesterday when we called in we were greeted by the decorating team! It looks so wonderful, really inviting and definitely gives that calm feeling we offer at our drop-in sessions with our new colour scheme.
Since last week the kitchen has progressed so quickly, the windows have been partly boarded up ready for kitchen worktops, the bottom left store room and front left office have been painted and both bathrooms have been tiled!

… one week in …
We had the biggest shock on Monday morning when we walked into Eden Gate to see it complete transformation already. The construction team had been working tirelessly throughout the weekend and had transformed it in a matter of a few days.
In the pictures uploaded below you can see that the kitchen has been completely removed and rebuild. The kitchen now has a door, a serving hatch and a separate store cupboard at the back. The store cupboard has been build with a floor so that we can have additional storage that is accessible from outside the kitchen where we will store our Summer Nightshelter bedding and beds.

… the before photos …
Unfortunately we didn’t think to snap some photos of Eden Gate before we completely emptied it ready for the renovations however we did manage to get some half way through us moving everything out.
Here are a few photos of what Eden Gate looked like before (well, mid-sort):
