Thanks everyone, we'll see how it goes. We'll be using it as a shop as well as a place customers can come see some mock ups , see the type of materials we use, etc. etc
Jaz, 2 streets down from Industrial on Hathaway.
Again thanks for the well wishes

Yeah, the refreshments part sounds good. The rest of it sounds like work.

I think that's a great idea, Steve. Show them the guts. Sell quality and not just glitter.

Combine a tile showroom with an Irish Pub and you will have a winning combination.

After Coverings is over we should be up and running, we have moved the shop areas over and got the office area basically ready(just waiting on a new desk and fileing cabinets to come in)
The showroom area is the slowest, waiting on table skirts, and have to install the glass tile over vanities and still have to tile the shower mock up.
Have got our logo on the door and will be getting window graphics soon and also have company name on the road sign.
Getting there slowly but surely.
