We’ve now started adding more of our new Acacia-wood window frames which respect the age of our building (The Bay Tree was built in 1895)
This is our sea-view lounge


Here we see some of the frames being put in place
The original wood window surrounds and skirting will be put back in place to preserve our original features


This is how some of our new windows are looking
We will have French patio doors leading from our sea view restaurant onto our terrace where the sign saying DG Joinery Ltd (our builders) currently is


The sea views from our balcony room are still as gorgeous as ever!


This is the rear of The Bay Tree, with our bay tree, supposedly the oldest alnd largest in Kent, to the right of our building
The roof tiles are now being placed on our extension
On the left of the building their is a large gap where we are replacing what was a ‘hidden window’, tucked behind old Room 6 (it will become Room 7, Walnut). There was a hidden area behind old Room 6 window: by cleverly opening up the chimney space, and getting into the gap we can create a much bigger bathroom. This room will also benefit from having a bath placed inside it’s new window


This is a close up looking into the new Room 7 bathroom space


This is looking from inside Room 7 out through it’s bathroom


We are getting on with the plastering in other rooms, such as Room 9, Yew, with it’s new Juliet balcony windows which offer a glimpse of the sea


On the top floor of our new extension, which will be the owners bedroom, the ensuite wetroom is now taking shape
We have deliberately designed this area, and the owners living, eating and office areas on the floor below, so that they can easily be converted into guest accomodation should the owners move, for example, next door

owners kitchen

It’s compact, with a fair bit of hidden equipment (washer dryer, dishwasher, fridge etc.) but this is the owners’ kitchen


Ben has been testing out our carpet samples!


Ben is always keen to spend time on the beach, such as at Botany Bay, just a few minutes drive from The Bay Tree, here on a very busy Sunday in April!
