June 2015, the internal walls

So, the fabulous new roof is on, but it’s too heavy for the internal walls to support… so we have to take them all out, insert steels and rebuild them.

This was the first time I really started to feel a little overwhelmed at the scale of the project.

I couldn’t resist taking another photo of that wonderful fireplace. The structure is on for the roof over the old part too, however, the walls are bowing so a ring of concrete is required to keep them together.

Meanwhile, the new roof is really rather fabulous! The thought of early evening drinks up here eventually, is keeping me going.
