Awkward visit

Following the conservation officers visit we make contact with an architect that Amanda has recommended to us. We organise a site visit with him in order that we can talk through our plans. We also use the opportunity to get our builder over to have a look.

We speak to the agent marketing the property about organising a visit. The agent comes back to us advising that it's all set up however we need to be a bit discreet as it's not common knowledge that the pub is being sold! This should be interesting.

So we turn up at 11am before the pub is open with our builder who has brought along a site foreman with him. There's 4 of us walking around, needing to get into every room & trying to be discreet. The architect then turns up to join us & we sense that the cat's now out of the bag. It's all very awkward & uncomfortable.

Will the rooms be ready by september 07? If so we would like to make a reservation. If I may can I suggest mellon bombs for the menu.
