So we are heading towards the end of January and in 1 month the beach House should (WILL) be 100% complete - interiors and everything- Ready to hire!
We have had lots of interest in the Beach House since the last post went live showing our rates and answering a few questions. We had worried people wouldn't want to enquire until they could see lots of images inside the property but we were obviously worrying a little too much, we have had some really great feedback about the property already and look forward to welcoming all our guests!
The flooring is finished in the living room, hallway, downstairs bedrooms, bathroom, en-suite and dining area! It has really brought a lovely flow to the property and in a week or so the remainder will be complete and we will be able to start thinking about getting the van packed up and delivering the furniture.
Something exciting (for me) this week was the update of the fireplace. When we purchased the property the fireplace surround was left behind, the previous owners were split on their opinion of it. John asked us one day "you won't be keeping that thing in will you"? He was very surprised to hear the answer was yes - I just Love it!
It needed a bit of TLC but I could definitely see it's potential!
SS managed to fill in lots of the cracks for us, sand it down and ensure the shape was back to how it should be!
We made the decision that we would paint the fireplace the same colour as the wall, not sure everyone had confidence in how this would look but we are very happy with the outcome...
These two images look like completely different rooms with the colours in these pics - they are definitely the same room and the wall is definitely grey (not blue).
The hearth that the fireplace was sitting on has also seen a bit of TLC. It has been re-tiled and painted to bring it up to date, and for it to fit in with our colour scheme a little better. This room is really coming together now!
I have lots of bits and pieces planned to go on top of the fireplace, I can't wait to get in there and start making the place feel all homely and lovely!
Not long to go!
37 Days and the Beach House will be open for guests! eeeeeekkkkkk...
