We have just finished the refurbishment of the first outbuilding at the pub, turning it into a garage block for storage.
We have had the roof repaired, walls repointed, ceiling/storage area built and wooden doors made to fit the 9ft tall openings. There has also been a huge amount of painting and preparation but it has been well worth it; we are delighted with how it all looks!
We are now transforming the yard into a courtyard seating area for customers to use, with some help from nearby Cragside, who have kindly let us have some of their old picnic benches as they are replacing theirs.
Here are some ‘before’, ‘during’ and ‘after’ photos:
