Clayton-le-Moors Freemasons' Hall - Mill House

The Wrecking Crew have been in at Mill House

The beginings of a new second Dining Room

W.Bro. Derek Henry Smith and W.Bro. Stuart Rayton, both members of the Lodge of Amity & Rossendale Forest No.283, went in to Mill House on the 17 June 2014 with the intension of wrecking the joint.

Well, anyway, to strip the walls of tiles and some plasterboard in the old, now disused kitchen in readiness for other trades to complete the work and convert it in to a new second Dining Room.

In addition it is intended that this room could be used as a buffet room for Socials and private functions.

The plan is that the project will be completed by September 2014, ready for the commencement of 'Masonic work' after the summer recess.

The Renovation Crew have started work...

Ceiling timbers go in

A new lowered ceiling is under construction with new ceiling timbers being installed
over the weekend of the 12-13 July 2014;
ready for plaster boarding and the fitting of the new lighting system.

'What's going on here then?'

Fire Doors and Electrical work

14 August 2014 ~ New Fire Doors and casings are being fitted along with new electrical wiring and first fix electrics.

Ready for Plastering and Skimming

20 August 2014 ~ The room is starting to take shape.
The ceiling has now been plaster boarded and one wall lined with a galvanized frame, thick insulation and plaster board,
other areas have been filled ready for plastering and skimming.

Hopefully the ceiling and walls will be fully plastered and skimmed this weekend.

Ready for decorating

22 - 24 August 2014 ~ The room was plastered on Friday and Saturday.
The doors, architrave and skirting boards were fitted on Sunday,
so once the plaster has dried out it will be ready for decorating.

The room is now taking shape ready for second fix electrics, decorating and floor covering to go down.

Nearly there!
