It has been more stripping back recently. The stripping seems never ending at times but we are back to brick in quite a lot of places now slowly getting there!
It was a little sad to see the floor up in this room as it would have been a gorgeous floor back in the day. Unfortunately it had wet rot in one corner and dry root throughout most of the other floor joists so it had to go.
The plaster was really quite damp in this particular corner as the roof at that section has been letting quite a lot of water. You just had to touch the plaster and it would fall off. We started poking it one afternoon and it got a bit addictive!
The plan is to get the scaffolding up around the front within the next few weeks and then roof repairs and the Mock Tudor cladding can be repaired and re-painted.
The online shop will be opening next Friday (13th July). Our web address will be www.guthrie-ghani.co.uk so be sure to stop by next week and take a look around and the goodies we will have on offer!
