THE BUILDING OF 'SLOW PACE'


A 60’ semi-trad, reverse layout, bespoke designed narrowboat with shell built by Reeves
and fit-out by Heartwood Narrowboats.


This is a blog of the building and fit-out of the Narrowboat Slow Pace from base plate to launch.
The more recent postings are pictures taken during our cruising.


Bathroom & Galley

08 08 08

Our latest trip to Heartwood gives us a chance to see the progress of the bathroom tiling and agree the final layout of the galley.

Maria has started tiling the bathroom walls......

..... and the floor!

We decide the best position for the WC pan!

Paul transposed our 'concept' paper galley worktop templates onto plywood.

These were then positioned at the correct height, which allowed us to make any changes necessary to the size & shape from both a practical & aesthetic point of view.

Now we have agreed the postion of the oven, hob, sink, fridge & microwave, the work on the carcasses can commence. The doors of the base units will be shaped to follow the curve of the worktops - a Heartwood speciality!
