I know it looks as though she's sat amidst a building site. We're really pushing ahead with renovations and it's so exciting to see (and feel) a difference as we insulate the house. It feels so satisfying to wrap it up just in time for winter.
If you're booked on one of my workshops then these next photos might leave you a little un-nerved, but honestly, the workshop space will be ready in time!
I think this is the first time I've shown a peek of what it's like inside. I know, rather shed-like at the moment, but give us a few more weeks and there will be white painted plaster, a beautiful tiled floor and lovely lighting. It may not look like it, but a lot of work has already been done. The entire structure been taken apart, old rotten wood replaced with new and last weekend we raised the roof!
Have to say though, I am more than a little heartbroken that some of the lovely painted surfaces will be covered up. I've been documenting it all very thoroughly first!
I really must do a little research and see if this company is still in existence. It's the maker's badge from the front door of the pavilion. Definitely a keeper - this won't be painted over!
