T Minus 4 weeks until we have our first guests stay!
So it has been all hands on deck to get the inside and outside finished off. Within a week the team have managed to build new steps down to the front door, lay a patio, replace the paving slabs in front of the Sunroom and build some steps up to the driveway! These guys amaze me every single week! Come rain or shine they are there, helping us every step of the way...
The garden had always been well looked after by John but the paths and steps were just a little unsafe so we knew they needed an update. With new steps and a freshly painted doorway we think the place looks much better!
The inside of the house has been having a few more details added...A handmade coffee table in the living room. It's amazing what I can do with a few scaffold boards and some hairpin legs!
A beautiful handmade vanity unit with free standing sink...
This was something we saw months ago, right at the beginning of the journey, we searched high and low to find something similar ready-made but we really struggled.
We decided to speak to a family friend who often makes bespoke commissions, after a little too long being indecisive we finally made our final decisions on wood, beading, tiles and feet....and here we have our final piece...
They are only little touches but they make a real difference to the rooms they are in and we just love that they have been made especially for the Beach House.
This weekend will be the first in a while that neither of us will be travelling down to the Beach House, I am on a hen weekend and Dale has to work. Next week will be the final weekend we see it before we welcome our first guests.
From now until then we will be working on our marketing and advertising to get our wonderful little beach house full up for 2017!
