Renovations & Improvements
The Old Stables are exactly that, old! It has taken a monumental effort to repair the building and make it as comfortable as possible, lining of the roof continues upstairs while work has also started on the second building to replace that roof entirely. Once that is completed then new doors, windows, insulation to the roof and a full rewire will follow.
Landscaping to the outside yard and additional decking will also follow soon, then the new picnic tables can be made and put in place ready for the outside bar to be put in. We are converting a horsebox trailer into a mobile bar so we can utilise the outside space and also rent it out to people to use for their own events. It will be supplied either stocked or not, entirely up to the custimer!
We have also completed new signage over the office door and put in new lights for that as well so people can clearly see where we are when they enter the yard.
We will be introducing new marked parking bays in the spring as well
Work on the new building is also progressing at a steady pace.
New doors have now been fitted to the side and more than 75% of the roof has been replaced. A new sliding door to the other entrance should be on in the next week or so and the rest of the roof completed. Then the rewire starts and new external lighting to the smaller yard will go in.
Work on the upstairs bar is progressing well, another section of the ceiling is now completed. Our original bar ceiling was lined with reclaimed pallets, free wood and all treated of course, quality hardwood mostly as well. We are replacing this with pine cladding as it is cleaner and blocks off drafts too but we will save the wood we previouly salvaged and turn the whole lot into fruit boxes. The bar will be rebuilt using some of these so we increase our storage four fold at least and we will be able to hang more glasses as well so we an spend more time serving customers and less time cleaning glasses when we have guests. More on this as soon as we have made some progress.
