It’s taken a lot longer than I thought to get the new flat ready to rent. The builder was delayed. The windows weren’t ready when we thought they would be. The kitchen fitter was taken ill. The summer holidays, when I thought we would be able to really break the back of the painting and decorating, slipped by with still no plaster applied.
However, we are finally getting somewhere now, and we confidently expect the flat to be ready, inside and out, by late December.
It will sleep a couple ,with a beautiful en suite bathroom, kitchen/ living room, and of course views out towards the hills and Kames Bay.
Everything- every wall, floor, ceiling is new, except in the hallway, where I’ve retained one slim section of old wall ,with it’s peagreen paint and 1920 scraps of wallpaper.
Once part of the original shop, Euphemia Marquis sold it in the 1950’s run it as a shop for many years. The other side of the building continued to trade as a shop, with the name ” Bay Grocers ”
So our wee flat will be called The Bay, as a nod to it’s background. We hope it will be as popular as the other two- we love it already. Photos to come once I’ve tidied up and finally finished the last of the painting!
