until way after Christmas. 

I think the casting guys are working on that one today so it'll be out to you tomorrow I'd think.  We always try to get all of the orders finished and out before Christmas, so no worries.

I've just realised it's been a while since I updated on our move, so here's the latest pics and news!

We spent a bit of time before/after Christmas doing more electrical work, with plug sockets put inside the shop counter and the laser room fans hard-wired in.

We also put some spotlights in the front of the shop where it was a bit dark, and then installed outside lighting at the front of the building, so the car park is well lit now.

Two weeks ago we had the carpet fitters in, installing vinyl in the back corridor and then some more carpet in our staff room, which has made it considerably warmer!

Inside the shop the bookshelves are filling up nicely and we've also got some larger shelves for the bottom of the slatwall boards.

And this week we started assembling the first of the games tables.  These are IKEA-style units but a bit smaller so that we can get a top/bottom board and castor wheels on, without it all being too tall.  There'll be two of these to start with, and then another 3 or 4 in the games room eventually.

And finally, today we spent a couple of hours outside doing some more repairs on the roof.  We're still waiting for the insurance company to sort this out (almost 3 months now) so they asked us to 'mitigate any further damage' from the storms coming tonight/tomorrow.

Next week we should have some of the shop signage arriving so things will start to look a lot closer to being finished in there.  The stock is slowly building up on the hooks as well, so we should be all ready in time for our opening on March 26th.

The response from the insurance company is particularly unimpressive ~X(

There is, but it was going over an old concrete workshop floor, so to be expected.  We'd flattened and filled a lot of it, but it wasn't worth the expense (and mess!) of doing a full floor skim for what's really just an access corridor at the back of the building.

Books!
Are those going to be books for sale in the shop, or just the Pendraken reference library?

These are all for sale, there's about 3500 in total I think.  Once we've got them all organised properly we'll put a list up here as well for folks to browse.

I have worked out I can actually get from Burnley to Middlsebrough on the train without too much hassle, but not sure how far the train station is from Pendraken Towers.

3500 books? That's more than I've got, you might actually have something I want!  :)

There is only one reply to that - why would I want to mail order from Brimstage ?

Well exactly Ian, why would you when you could order from Middlesborough instead? :D
