Shed Extension Grant Application — The Victorian Department of Health & Human Services in May made the application available and Ian Howley and myself are currently working through it. We will be applying for $60,000.00. Estimated total project cost is $106,000. The Shed has to contribute $46,000.00 in cash and in-kind labour/materials. It has to be finalised by the end of June. Notification of success or otherwise will not be until late December 2019.
Work on-site — Things are starting to happen:
- Tree removal;
- Site levelling and some road-fill added;
- Trench digging and stormwater pipes laid;
- Additional road-fill dumped on-site and ready for final spreading, compacting and levelling.
- Alterations to plumbing lines and the relocation of the Solar Hot-Water Unit on the roof will be happening soon.
Note: funding for this initial preparation work was obtained in late 2018 from the Alpine Shire’s Community Development Funding Program.
