Looking really nice, you will be very pleased with all the insulation, it makes a world of difference in these old buildings.

I'm looking forward to coming to have a look in the summer!

Progress versus nostalgia .... just a before and after picture of the cold store room now to be kitchen ... remember the well trodden rungs of the ladder that was used to invite yourself in and find your neutral space :lol:

Hi Craig - yes, new photo's here!


Finished doorcase complete with outside light:

I'm now in the process of extending the landing so that the left-hand jamb of the doorcase isn't beyond it. I started the stone base last year with some help (thanks Steve!) and need to finish it this Summer:

and at night:

In the bathroom I've installed a hob grate (£10 on Ebay) but it is purely cosmetic as the flue is blocked with rubble. When the new floor was laid, over the old one, I had the hearth lifted so that it is flush with the boards and you can see the edging pieces which make for a tidier junction between the boards and the hearth - a typical C18th & C19th detail.

General view of the courtyard. Just need the grass to recover...

This is the scullery. The blockwork stalls will be rendered with lime and I'll fit a worktop on them. The space to the right will house a dishwasher.

Uncle Monty's china cupboard was in a bit of a state - knackered plaster to the rear where settlement had caused cracks and the plaster was, for the most part, detached from the masonry.

I removed the shelves and linings (they will be re-fitted) in order to hack off the plaster. I found a 3" crack between the back wall and the courtyard wall and also another blocked spice cupboard.

http://i.imgur.com/t8Um26i.jpg

The crack's now been filled and I've scratch coated the walls. During my next trip I plan to reinstate the linings (you can see them to the right of this photo with grooves for the shelves) and apply a finish coat.

At the other end of the house, the dining room just needs to be decorated and if whoever pinched the range would like to return it then I'd be very happy to reinstate it.

During my latest visit there wasn't a drop of rain. After a hard day's graft it was time to rediscover the meaning of Leffe [blonde] and this was the view I had to enjoy:
