Sam And Dan's the build goes ahead

This photo is a stitch together of 3 photos to try and show you what the shop looks like inside at the moment.
The builders are going to start in the morning ripping the whole place apart.



The kitchen will be on the left of this photo going all the way back through the wall that is there now.
On the far right wall there will be a bar type seating area. Well hopefully if all goes to plan
and there is enough room. Below is the layout for the shop to give you a better idea.


We are also looking to put seating at the front of the shop
looking out the window, so people can chill, have a dog and watch the world go by. Which I think will be really nice.

I will upload some more photos once the place has been gutted.

Demolition has begun in Sam and Dan's

Myself and Keith started smashing down a few walls in the new shop today. I Can't wait to get the builders in to really go to town on it. Still it felt great to smash a hole into a wall of a property we have been fighting for now for and tied up in legals now for about 9 months. I will post up some pics to my Flickr account of how the shop looks now before we really get started.



Hopefully it will be cool to look back in a months time and see the before and after pics.

We are aiming for a early June opening, if all goes to plan. (fingers crossed)

I'm now on Twitter

I know I'm way behind on jumping on to this one, but after reading about Twitter Phone on Pat Phelans blog I thought I had better get round to see what all the hype was regarding Twitter.

As you can see on the right hand side of the page I have my latest Twitter updates. From what little use I have given it so far I have to say I'm empressed.

Sam and Dan's now finally underway

After 9 months of negotiations we have finally signed the lease for Sam&Dan's.

We are to start construction of the shop straight away and we will hope to open some time early next month. You can check back here for updates of the build and I will post up photos as well.
