Poor old cottage at the moment

This is the front of our cottage at the moment...all the old rendering is being taken off. Hopefully it'll be re-pointed with lime mortar if the stonework proves to be okay.

11 May, 2010

 

Another week or two Amy and it should be done....the stonework is mostly good but theres a few bits of making up which will take a bit of time.

Thanks Cristina, we thinks its at least 200 years old....it seems funny to think those stones haven't been seen in all that time!

I'm off to have a look at yours Cristina......I'm sure it will be fine posting more pics of your interior....house and garden..it's all your home...:o) Since we came back to live in England...I've been home helping, I spent years having a good job with a top supermarket chain, then when we returned I worked for M&S but couldn't adapt to the regime after having so much freedom. Now I am happy thinking my own thoughts whilst still being busy. I love travelling. my garden, wild-life and my camera.....can't wait for pension time...Lol!!
