Early April 2017
An empty room with an identity crisis. Thinking it’s going to be an office, this space needs much work to become a culinary education venue!

Carpet goes. Well, the majority of it.
9th April 2017
Great news! The final building permit is through from the City of Melville. Let’s push the ‘launch’ button!

Plumbers in, coring waste and water holes and fixing pipes. Lighting position altered to accommodate future partition walls.
Big job of partition frames, walls then finishing completed.
Easter Weekend 2017
Team Cotterell get in with brushes and rollers to paint walls.
Scullery and Kitchen Flooring laid.
All going well until the second roll was opened. Ooops! Varying shades from two different batches.
First stage kitchen cabinets in. Looking schmiko. Oh look there’s the cameraman!
Friday 28th April
Ovens and fridges in. More wiring and plumbing done.
Wednesday 10th May
Flooring now complete – 3rd time lucky with matching the rolls. Beautiful Ogilvie sinks plumbed in. Scullery benches and commercial dishwasher mostly installed. Air conditioning re-routed.

Lots happening tomorrow and Friday.
