Working together with Martin and his electricians we have progressed the work to the point where we have now positioned the services inside The Bothy.  Electricity, broadband and telephone wiring is currently being placed and our IT consultant, Ikon systems has been on hand to advise on how everything should be done.  AC, telephones and data will circle the room from the entry point and reach the Ketch work desk, taking in the position of the server, plotter and fax area.  DC power from the solar panels and battery bank will be added to the trunking later and DC wiring will also be built into the overhead shelving in order to power the DC lighting.  Each of the services will also be taken onto the island bench which will form the new amateur radio station for EI2GN.

Interior of The Bothy showing the Electrician working in the server area and Martin working outside to complete the external details. A very light green has been apllied to the walls to work with the varnished pine ceiling, window details and rear wall. The landscape architecture work-desk will soon be located under the horizontal window.

The focus throughout the project has been on allowing natural light into The Bothy. In order to maximise the delivery of natural light we have used Dulux Light and Space paint to maximise reflected light within the space. This wall will largely be behind the amateur radio bench so it really is a test of what the paint technolgy can do. On the left hand side is the entry and distribution point for the electrical, data, telephone and radio cables.
