Studio Apartment Update
Work is continuing apace to the Studio despite out frequent returns to the UK. Electrics and plumbing have been installed. We will be ready for our first guests by 11th June 2016.
Studio Balcony in preparation
Simon has completed the plastering and painting of the walls. Well done SIman!! The original stone walls are exposed in places and having been cleaned and regrouted, look amazing. The room is taking on a French cottagy vibe. It should look very pretty when finished.
The wooden floorboards are already laid, although covered for protection and not visible in the photos. I’m looking forward to seeing the floorboards exposed as they should add a further rustic feel.
Simon hard at work
Simon is beginning the kitchen assembly today, hurrah!
