Wednesday (day 87) we met with Paul who will make up the electrical wiring loom to confirm what power points etc we'd need and these were marked on the inside of the cabin walls together with the positioning of light fittings etc so that he can purchase materials needed and get on with making the appropriate looming.
Stuart spent most of Thursday and Friday ordering in materials and arranging for the foam spray insulation to be done next week and we (George and I) spent those days emptying the last of the contents from Rock n Roll and making her clean and tidy for the handover on Saturday.

Next week once the ballast is in and the insulation in place, the flooring can be put down, the wiring can go in and then (for me) the real fun bit starts - the fit out, really looking forward to that!
