Blog 17 🏡 This Monday had a company in to sand blast the black beams in the lounge, also strip the paint off the fireplace and clean stonework around it. Messy & noisy, what a mix !
Been told the old beam above the fireplace has black candle marks on it which you can see & this was to keep the witches away from the open fireplace ! Sometimes there are other markings but not showing any.
What a difference it has made.
How it used to look…….
Next step is a good hoover & clean of all the walls & windows, it’s very dusty from the sand ! Then do we decorate this room before furniture comes back in ? We will see …..
Blog 16 🏡Here goes, thatch coming off !
Thatch is making wonderful progress, looks so different, very neat, what a great skill to have.
Lead work between the two roofs looking much much better, no leaks now!
Remember how awful it used to look, leaking all over the place !
Look at that chimney ! Planning to get painted during thatch work 🏞
Old velux windows coming out, looking better.
How the roof looked with the windows & old thin thatch….the thatch depth should have been up & over edge of windows…. ⬇
Nicely painted facias in deep brown colour, trying to remove all the black paint. Painting the corner lights in brown too as they were black & white but all peeled off.
