The new showroom era begins!
So the big clear out of the barn has started, and preparation for the building company to arrive is underway. We are beyond excited!
Jo and Peter are busy mapping out the showroom interior onto the concrete floor with chalk, and designing the layout for our gifts, accessories and furniture.
There will be sections for pattern books, paint colours and wall coverings, as well as a bespoke kitchen area and office area.
The building company and their contractors will be replacing and introducing lovely large, uniform windows into our energy-efficient space. The roof is strewn with solar panels soaking up this lovely Summer sun. Speaking of which, down the road at the 'pick you own' fruit farm just half a mile away, it is absolutely bursting with visitors this afternoon, and after glimpse of the punnets of strawberries gathered we are certain the farm has had a great season.
The team have had a superbly productive week shifting farm equipment, crates and hardcore from the barn.
Amongst the dust and debris, we just discovered some delightful traditional craftsmen's marks on the roof beams, which is a lovely reference to the history of the building.
We look forward to posting the next installment of the developments here at Jo Frances Ltd and the latest news from Cammas Hall.
