After 2 years of searching we found a building for ecoco. It had all that we were looking for; location, potential, history and a few great cafes around the corner. Along with all of that has come months of planning and a few issues. But....
finally, we are able to start swinging the sledge hammers at 51 Balfour Street.
After 4 months of frustrating delays we are finally able to start the demolition of the old sheds to make way for the extension of the shop downstairs and the apartment upstairs.
You can see the problem we have with rising damp.
This is a photo of the back of the building. As you can see not a lot of heritage value back here. Years of neglect and bad alterations have resulted in this mess!!!
