Renovations Diary: 21st August, 2020

So much has progressed with The Coach House this week it’s hard to know where to begin. However, a good place to start is that the scaffold is down! The team worked hard in the rain mid week to peel away the steel layers and unveil the beautiful work that has been happening over the last couple of months.

Ties can be seen on the side of the building

The upstairs room has had windows and door panels fitted along with skirting and sills ready for painting at the end of this week. Plaster board has gone up on the ceiling and back wall of downstairs ready for plastering over the weekend.

Meanwhile more tweaking of light fixtures and repointing of bricks continues along with skillful artistry to the lead work on the front bressummer beam. We are awaiting the arrival of our big double doors that were sent away for pampering and soon the building’s copper earrings (lanterns) will go on!
