16 April - update

Deon van Zyl (husband) and Deon Bezuidenhout (friend) doing an excellent job in making and installing burglar bars.  Hopefully we are now theft proof!
Working space in kitchen installed.   Thanks Phil for doing a superb job (as per usual) on the installation of plumbing, electrics and carpentry.Thanks to Maretha for donating a fridge and the lady (I dont know her) for donating an oven.  Oven installed tomorrow (19 April) by Grahams appliances.   All we need now for the kithchen to be fully functional is a freezer, microwave and some big catering pots.

The new classrooms are complete and here the ceilings have been painted.  The whole room is now painted (18 April).  Started painting kithcen today (18 April)  Hendrik is my right hand man and he is completing most of the finishes.

"project manager" seems pretty chuffed with the progress.

Thanks to Jordan for initiating a couple of "drives" ie. blanket drive and tinned food drive at Somerset College. I am really excited about what we can get from these.  Thanks Tracey for your continued support in general and help with finding sponsors, phone numbers of suppliers etc. Cathy and her bookclub with their offer to help - thanks!

Many of you have promised help with laying floors, painting etc.  I haven't forgotten and will contact you when the time comes.

April 08, 2011

The actual building is finaly done.  Last wall being plastered and ceilings nearly in.  Next week we start painting  and I think that will make everthing come together perfectly. Tomorrow my husband and I and some very special friends will measure for burglar proofing, corniches, shelving and install security gates. Hopefully the electrical work and plumbing will also commence next week.

Thank you to those of you who have joined in so enthusiastically in finding sponsors (or being the actual sponsor!)   Strandfoam for agreeing to supply mattresses, Duraline for supplying paint, Ilze for donating doors and railings and for scouting around for kitchen supplies, Mandy for putting me in contact with possible donaters and flooring etc.
