In places you could not move.
Then the last section of the old central column started to come down.

It looked so much bigger for 10 minutes,
then all the boxes that were still outside in the garden had to come inside pro tem.

So off to start on day four of the change over.

I will have to make two visits to the local tip to get rid of all the old cardboard boxes we used to use.
We added at least another 20/25 boxes to this pile today

So from yesterday if anyone following along closely will see we built the side wall up with larger boxes
and have now the following day taken down to half way and built up with the smaller boxes.

Things move from plan A to plan B sometimes.
No doubt we will have a change about again over the coming weeks when we work out a better picking system.

We then changed the back wall and took down the top three smaller sections of the back
wall to add two more rows of the bigger storage boxes underneath.

Then added the smaller ones back on top,
then realising three will not fit top right due to the slope on the roof.

It was tricky connecting the boxes together as there was not clearance above.
We had to come up with some colourful ways to join them up.

Now deciding how tall the centre Isle will be, we were hoping for it to be at a height so
we could pack orders but if it went full height we could get an extra 70/80 picking boxes.

I worked on Sempertex corner yesterday, what I thought would take an hour
ended up with having to fit new insulation and move things about here and there etc.

I then had to get some wood cut and cut some odd shaped bits myself
so that we can use every little bit of space we have.

The before and after pictures.

Took two car loads down to the rubbish dump so that took a long time as well.

Still it's slowly coming together and I started on the mess above the cupboards.
The picture is after I had sorted it for a while, finding other spots to keep
some of the items and throwing out bits and bobs that I'm sure we all keep
for years and never use..................or is it just me?

The before and after pictures.

Glad someone is reading about the adventures Rob.

So yesterday we started off wanting to sort out above the cupboard where the boxes we take to the days sit.
To do this I then had to fir the shelving first above the back wall as the cardboard boxes on the cupboard were going to sit there.
But to fit the shelving I had to fit the insulation on the back wall so it all started back to front so to speak.

So the shelving and insulation got finished along the back wall.
Then I moved onto fitting the insulation above the cupboards so we could sit the balloons we take to the days.

Tried to work out the best way to use the space above the shelving,
I'm sure we will move it about many times before we are happy.

Where the cardboard boxes sit above the cupboards I expect that is where the 24 extra storage boxes
will go when the new Q-pac comes out in a few weeks.

The plan is not to have too many cardboard boxes, we usually order every 2 months but
will order every month so that we have more room for product.

It was then onto putting the insulation under the centre storage unit.

And that was it for another day, today the plan is to take the laptop down the shed as I have
to change all the numbers on the website. Anyone that is observant might have noticed we
have a code in brackets on every item. This coincides with the number storage box the
product is in down in the.................as Rob puts it, Ware-Shed.

Although once you come over Rob I think you might call it a warehouse ;)

I started to change the numbers over on the website, did that for 45 minutes then got fed up.

Put more boxes and bits and pieces away, the only thing not back in the shed are
my DVD's and the padded envelopes for sending out the Balloon Artistes Guild DVD's.

We do have some space in the cupboards so will be re-arranging our second shed we have in the garden
so we can put some of the items from the warehouse cupboard there which will give us the room
to put the last things back into the ware house.

I have ordered another 42 storage boxes and then we might be nearly ready for the official opening
which is going to be made by a balloon celebrity in the near future.
