This will be a super quick blog post........we are crazy busy getting ready for the National Homebuilding & Renovating Show at the NEC next week. If you haven't got tickets yet please call the office for free e tickets 01568 708 752.
Anyway, we have a completely new stand thus year which is both thrilling and nerve-wracking. So many things to order and plan for a frame that you haven't seen.......
We have had a few ideas and hope to meet as many of you there as possible to chat about self build and how Border Oak might be able to help.
One of our more frivolous/fun ideas includes making posters of the delicious quotes about Border Oak from the TV shows that have featured our houses recently - Grand Designs, Restoration Man and Building the Dream
And printing new postcards and new brochures
We have new designs to showcase, new products and new photos to display as well as a lot of new furniture to share.....come and flop on our gorgeous new sofas if your legs get a little weary.
And a quick cottage update......new windows are in
Extension is being weatherboarded
Garden walls and steps have been built and lime rendered
The interior has now been insulated and also plaster boarded
A timber stud wall has been erected to take a radiator (rads a right nuisance I have discovered - underfloor heating is miles easier!)
And the windows have all been glazed and completed
Next week the extension is glazed and uncovered
And I had better start thinking of planting the garden.......maybe after the show though??
If Border Oak were to keep the cottage and offer it for holiday lets would any of you be keen to hire it? It is within a few metres of an award winning shop and tea room and so hot croissants and fancy coffee would literally be on your doorstep, if that helps persuade you? Would love to know if there was interest in a holiday let such as this as it might mean changing the plans for furniture etc.
But anyway - see you at the show!!
