We haven’t had much to report since our last post. There’s been plenty of action, we’ve just already told you about it all.
But this week big changes are afoot. A major transformation is underway and we cannot wait! Ever since we pulled that first piece of wallpaper off in December it has been an uphill battle. Problems jumped out at every turn and what began as a quick facelift became a major internal works project. We turned an important corner when the plasterboards started to go back on the walls a few weeks ago. Now the plasterers are doing their magic and we’re going to have a front bar with smooth, clean walls. I cannot begin to describe how exciting this is!!!
The WCs have also been a struggle, but of a different kind. Instead of damp, we had to battle floor to ceiling tiles that were an absolute mission to remove. Now those bathrooms are at a point where they will also be re-boarded in some places then plastered. Once that’s all complete, our tiler will appear and make them look gorgeous!
We are keeping a constant eye on the budget and schedule. One of the things we want to avoid is a rush job at the end, it’ll just end up looking amateurish. So we’ve decided to push out our deadline for opening by a couple of weeks. As much as we’re dying to throw open the doors and celebrate our love of delicious drinks with the wonderful people of Bath – we have to get this done right!
Watch this space – there will be more photos and more exciting things to tell soon!
