Some house photos

Having finally cleared the camera of some memory and downloaded the photos, I was able to take a few shots of different bits of the house. My main focus this week has been the destruction of the fireplace, so I am afraid I have only really taken a limited range of shots.

A view from the back garden of the interesting rear elevation.














Now for some interior views of 'places with potential'. First, upwards...

The window in the attic, one of many bits which show it was once a room (and can be again).

Lots of nice beams, many re-used from something ancient!














...and then down below...

Very nice curved steps downwards (a good place to store wine!)...

...leading to a lovely (well it will be once cleaned) brick-arched cellar.
