And so the wheels go round..!
Over the last couple of months there’s been a great deal of progress and soon we will be able to reveal the upstairs of the Old Winery as all the rooms are now laid out. The first fix electrics have taken place and the plumbing is in progress. There have been 3 other important stages reached too, we now have stairs and can now reach the upper floor with ease.
We chose a floating staircase which is made from the reclaimed beams when we took the old ceiling down. Its been beautifully made by Danny Fenton who is a creative genius..!
Another important step was the opening of the outside cuve. We thought this old wine making vessel would be made from concrete as the vast majority of them are, however it turned out to be made from stone all the way through. We have created a large opening which will be filled with the metal and glass doors that will be used in all the windows and doors. This is going to be Wendy’s office and she’s named it her ‘girl cuve’, after all Fisher has his man cave which is the workshop and garage.
Above the cuve we have created a roof terrace and a bridge connecting it to one of the bedrooms. Rousseau the cat approves..!
The final exciting development was the removal of the press. It would have been great to keep it but it was just too huge for the room and was smack bang in the middle of our future kitchen. It wasn’t an easy job to get it out…
