exciting news

I am rubbish at keeping quiet when there is news to tell!
I've been trying to keep quiet about this until it's all finalised - but I can't, I'm too excited!!
This .....
...is going to be my new workshop premises!!
It's the ground floor (sadly my bits not yellow!) it's the BIG door in the middle and the windows either side....
 The past few months we have really struggled with the current workshop - it's much much too small for more than one person to work in, let alone to hold all the stock - stairs do not make a good stock room!! and the extra space we've borrowed around the corner for kit storage isn't quite big enough either...
 So a bigger workshop has been hunted down...this one is 1400 sq ft (it feels ginormous...my current workshop is 300 sq ft!!) and it's just around the corner from here, perfect!
I hope you can see from the photos just how big it is - it's a huge next step and I'm slightly terrified, but I think it will be amazing - there's one big open workspace and 3 separate offices ... one of the offices is almost as big as my entire workshop is now!!
Please keep your fingers crossed that the lease will all go through OK ...if it all goes to plan I'll be moving in in the New Year - yippee!!!
:-)
