Creating Space

Meanwhile the boys inside are carefully taking out walls that we have permission to enabling us to widen doorways and creating larger rooms. Whilst doing this we are continually finding little treasures, for example in the top photo to the left of the pillar is a walled up old window which we are hoping to take all the stonework out and make a feature of. The middle picture is of our kitchen to be, after taking out a block wall and opening the room up we now have a bigger space to work with than previously thought. And the bottom picture is of an old doorway which we have taken through to what was the old ladies so we can essentially create an L-shaped room.

Hi Flatcapper

What a great blog!

How about telling us more about your plans for the whole establishment. With BoA now full of "cafe bars" masquerading as pubs, any chance we might see a place where tv averse drinkers might prop up the bar and simply enjoy a beer or two (as well as, of course, enjoying a bite of food). You could pack the place out with refugees from the bland offerings in the Town at the moment.
