We decided we needed a space to pursue our own interests and businesses as well as the B&B – Anne’s work as an upholsterer and Anthony’s photography and gallery. We looked for five years before we found the ideal place to open the B&B and the studios.

The renovation took a year and Anne worked at her job throughout while Anthony went back ‘on the tools’ to keep costs down and help move the work along.

What have we done? June 2012
