The Third Week

It's the beginning of the third week and the builders have made steady progress, as you can see in the top picture we have opened up the wall into the old toilets and created a much better space, the windows are going to be replaced with a 1.5 metre sash window to bring it in line with the rest of the windows in the building. In the second picture there are two openings, the one on the right will be reinstated as a window frame (no glass) and made a feature of, this will also help to strengthen the wall and the entrance into the room will be through the doorway to the left. This room will have a few book cases and the fireplace at the end is going to be cleared out, made good and have a hob-grate placed into it (picture above). All three rooms will have open fires to help heat the rooms and lets face it there is nothing like having a drink of your favourite tipple in front of an open fire.
