Got the keys - whoop - whoop
Not sure it's hit home yet!
The old goat measures up for my new desk. The shop space is about 12' deep and 10' across. Huge window front with a little raised display area in it
There is a darling little fire place - which we hope to restore eventually. the walls are all rough clad plaster - which is wonderful - with original exposed wooded beams. I am going to take all the batons off the wall and repaint them white and leave them plain.
The ceilings are soooo high - we guess about 20" - but it seems well insulated and seemed quite cosy inside.
Beside the front door is a run of plain wall - here will go our slat wall and the book cases
There is a small passage way - which will eventually become the space where painting and wall art will be displayed
And beyond that is a tiny little kitchen / staff / stock room. Uck pretty mucky - needs a good scrub and coat of paint. But there is a decent kitchen sink - and a couple of cupboards - loads of shelving - it will be fantastic
Then the old goat found a spider. Yes - he got soooooo excited that he had a spider - said it was a really rare one in the North - and a good luck symbol. All I could think was - IT'S A SPIDER - GET IT OUT - but he nursed it and talked to it - and put it put side
