Fair’s fair.

There’s something very English about tapping a barometer, even when it’s a French one. Every time I pass it, I tap it, but I have absolutely no idea why. Can anyone tell me?

The barometer is another 1950s touch at Seaside Lodge

Some recent pictures of progress on Seaside Lodge’s renovation.

We’ve got our first 4 bookings (yay!), and are getting very excited about reaching the finishing line. We’ve had some fantastic feedback from visitors, and several people coming for a look around on spec.

Kitch + 1950s + nautical!

We’re feverishly opening boxes at Seaside Lodge, unpacking all the pieces we’ve been collecting from the four corners (of the UK) to give the lodge a special lodge-y-1950s-slightly-Scandi-a-tad-nautical-English-seaside-creative feel. It’s exciting, we forgot we had stalked and hunted down some of these treasures.

A post about the finishes touches shortly – when we finally get to the bottom of all the bubble wrap.

Renovation-wise, we’re nearly done inside. Some final painting, kitchen door fronts and scaffold shelving to complete. Here are some pics from the last week. Happy to report the lodge definitely looks more like a messy home than a building site. There’s progress for you.

Now, on to the garden. The planting is underway. We start building the deck over the lake in a week or so.

Technically, a stag isn’t a seaside animal. But this one is wooden. So it’s allowed.

The bedrooms are finished. Yay!

Lousy shot, great view at sunset. Don't let the photographer near the Rosé.

The main living area is getting there!

Kitchen wall - bear with us, it's going to look great.

Stop press: duck egg 1950s tiles now on kitchen wall.

Waking up to the view of the lake - bliss.

No matter what time you open the blinds, Colin the Moorhen will be doggedly swimming across the lake. And back again.

The first picture is up.

The first print is up – Ground Swell by Edward Hopper. A present from our pal Mandy.

There are many more paintings and prints to follow.

You too will come to love a cold snap. It’s an excuse to light the log burner and snuggle down for the evening.
