The Refurbishment: September 2010 – June 2011
A lot of blood sweat and many tears later and we opened somewhat later than planned on 1 June 2011. The project included an enormous amount of structural work, a new roof, rewiring and a new heating system. None of this could have happened without the support of some great contractors; a few not so good but they were sussed quite early!
Here are some before shots and for those that have visited already you will have seen the transformation:
A big thanks to the star of the project: –
Mr Stuart Depper of 3 Counties Landscaping (01684 569597) – Putting up fencing at midnight the night before opening was only one of many favours but he is also a thoroughly nice chap to do business with and completes a first class job.
Here are a few we would certainly recommend:-
Darren from Past & Present Carpentry (07870 879038) – He’s here today, we keep finding him more jobs!
Paul at Period Joinery Malvern (01684 311105) – He manufactured the awesome bar, front oak window and front door, he’s great value for money
Paul at Costello Joinery (01885 488713) – Reliable and great value, supplied all the new windows and the oak French doors.
Pete Dewson of Malvern Floor Tiler (01684 594610) – Great tiler, fantastic job.
Simon Flanagan Electrician (07969 958513) – Completed the entire fit out all on his own, honest and reliable.
Ryan Barry Plasterer (07970 977220) – A perfectionist, reliable & clean worker – never seen anyone move so quick on stilts!
But a few others we should not forget to mention, Alfie the builder (what a solid rock and a great guy), Ernie who stood in for him, Dave and Stewart for all those hours and hours of painting and for being great friends.
