Another week has past and we’ve been extremely busy trying to push everything forward inside our new shop. We’ve finally finished the wiring so now we’re able to start on the cosmetics such as the new ceilings, plastering, tiling the floor and decorating!
We just hope this beautiful sunny weather (we’ve been missing out on) the UK has been having will show up for us on our launch day in a few weeks time!
Keith just back from his jungle trek!
Above shows the RSJ and steel posts which enabled us to take out a load bearing wall and open up the shop.
A new consumer unit! Yes, we have light! A work of art no?
Dangerous job breathing the dusty, dirty air in here at the moment!
I wonder what this is going to be, any guesses?
Alarm cables. Fancy untangling them?
Loops for 24v lighting. It’s like the ‘hanging garden of wires’ in the shop!
As you may know from looking at our website, we’re currently moving! We’ve bought a turn of the 20th century end terraced shop in Cricklade Road, Swindon. Why? Because the building we were sharing at Blunsdon lease had come up for renewal and we couldn’t afford to have it on our own. Plus we found this fab shop in the middle of a built up area close to Gorsehill and Pinehurst.
So now we will have some neighbours to talk to and are keen to serve and become part of the local community. Plus we can walk down the road to a local newsagent for essential supplies when the batteries are getting low! It’s a great location and Keith and I along with handy Andy are getting stuck into the renovation! As you can see below we have quite a lot of work on our hands at the moment!
Outside the new shop.
Look at the electrics! Could do with bring them into the 21st Century!
Pink is the new black in 2011. We do have an outside Karzi if you need to go!
Piers and Keith working out where the bikes will go.
We’ll keep you posted on our progress and bring you some more photos along the way! We’re aiming to be open soon after Easter. In the mean time we are still trading and you can call us on 07935 957737 (We’re currently having issues with our landline, BT are not able to transfer from Blunsdon to Swindon?).
You can also keep up to date on our progress via our new Twitter account! Thats right we’re tweeting too!
