It's been a while, but things are beginning to take shape. As expected it was never going to be an easy journey with such an old property, but so far we have not found any hidden treasures (sadly) or old bones (thankfully) only added costs..... also expected.
Below are a few images of the current state of affairs - still a way to go but can't wait to live there later this Summer, feel so blessed and lucky.
|The diggers have gone.|
|Some re-wiring through 5ft stone walls.|
|Kitchen nearly ready for fitting - part of chimney gone.|
|Back walls nearing completion, drains re-routed and all sorts of re-inforcement.|
|Posh shed foundations in progress.|
|Basement being tanked, damp proofed you name it - it's being done....|
|Basement laundry room to be and waiting for new stairs to be re-instated.|
|Drawing room at it's worst, this is the oldest part of the house - previously a tower within Booterstown Castle. Walls being fixed, new floors to go in and most importantly central heating.|
|Sample of re-claimed oak floor for the drawing room - minus the mahogany strips though - less is more!|
|Stud work for the en-suite taking shape in the Master bedroom - finished off with glass panels up to the ceiling.|
|Master En-suite stud work from another angle.|
