Social Center Part 28 (Little Destruction)

So one of the small things that needed to be repaired was the kitchen pot area.

Because of poor construction the cement around the pots had started to collapse which created a gap which allowed the smoke of the fire which is below the pot and actually outside. The smoke would come into the kitchen. Generally, filling the room with smoke.

So it had to be torn apart in order to reinforced and additional support added.

As I said a little destruction but since the kitchen is one of the most used parts of the whole Social Center it was important to fix it.
