We have keys!

We finally pinned down our lease agreement on Friday and now have a set of keys to 6-8 South College Street in our hands! Friday evening was spent celebrating with a 'Growler' from Brew Dog Edinburgh and a hammer, that we introduced to a few walls. We found a lot more brick and stone than we originally thought was there, which is really exciting. We're planning on wire brushing it all down, sealing it and making it look amazing. There's also lots of old original horse hair plaster behind some of the walls, as well as some interesting tongue and groove wood panelling. We even found a page from a 1970s Sun newspaper stuffed in one of the walls. Once we've exposed all the original features, we think the unit is going to look really quite unique. The professionals are coming in on Wednesday to do a much better job than we did with a small hammer. We're expecting a week of strip out works, followed by going straight into the fit out. Of course, we'll keep you updated with lots of pictures of what's going on.
