To turn our Hall’s Lounge/Bar into a coffee shop meant we had work to do!
More electrical outlets and lights…
So here is Dave Goodall helping us with the wiring!
|Having finished the wiring, Andy Kemp then volunteered to help us with the plastering!|
|And here it is with lots of new sockets and ready to be painted!|
More shelves for cups, mugs and plates…
We had planned to buy Odeche timber but then Ian Gibson volunteered to supply Oak from a Thedden tree…. all we had to do was prepare it…
|First we had to move the 5 meter (!) ‘planks’ from where they had been stored and seasoned… thanks Ed Neish!|
|Then just cut them into the sizes we need…|
|Then put them through Ian Gibson’s miracle planer to turn them into the same thickness…. (many, many times!!!!)||
|And the onto sanding… well maybe after a tea / coffee break!||
|Making the frame for the big screen in the entrance hall…||
