Some More Interior Work and Shopping






Our stone mason, whilst waiting for the go ahead on the re-pointing, has re-built the window so we can make a bit of a feature of it in what will be the snug area (first picture) and has cleaned up the lintel over the snug entrance that previously looked like a rabid dog had had a chew on it (second picture). Meanwhile Phil and Kev have been busy knocking walls down and and laying a smooth foundation for what will be our ladies and disabled toilets (third picture). Whilst this has been going on we have been out and about scouring local rec yards looking for our front door, which needs to be fairly meaty and possibly with a bit of luck Georgian. We come upon such a door (fourth picture) at a rec yard in Bristol and also discover a couple of fireplaces that would look perfect in a couple of our rooms (fifth picture), especially the fireplace in the snug where we will have to be completely rebuild what is there currently.
