Follow the Sign...

Design by Stuart Hammersley 'Give up Art'
Our lovely friend Tim, a local artist, has painted our sign! It will be going up on the front of the Loft over the next couple of days.
Tim is a brilliant artist and has studio in the village that he shares with his also very talented wife Julie.  Check out their blog 'Saunders & Co' to see some of their brilliant work. 

Tim and Julie will hopefully be displaying some of their work at 'The Loft'. I'll keep you posted.

Thanks Tim - Love the Sign x

Progress Report

So we have had the end of term madness!! followed by a week of camping and now ready to start really moving on 'The Loft'.  While we were away the kitchen was fitted, the flooring laid in the kitchen and bathroom, and now Bel is busy finishing the painting.  My fave second hand furniture man - Geoff, is busy sorting through his abundance of tables and wood etc. to hopefully find a suitable counter top.  As the pic shows, the counter has been made by recycling the wood from the wall that was removed, and is now being given a nice oil eggshell finish!
 The bathroom (previously the kitchen) is

nearly complete!! Just waiting for our dear friend Chaney to make the unit for the butler sink, and Bel to finish  some painting and it will be ready to go!! well with a bit of styling first of course!  Really want to try and open to catch at least some of the school holidays!!

 And finally......... HOOOORRAAAYYY - we also have some nice front steps!!!
