|These are the pictures of the house and garden before any proper work started.|
|An image showing most of the front of the house, the attached outhouse is just out of frame on the right.|
|And the attached outhouse to the right of the main building.|
|A shot of the front garden which shows the two tree stumps which remain after the trees in question were felled.|
|This picture is looking back up the garden to show the path to the front door and the 'driveway'. I say driveway, but its really just a few, now broken, slabs and a couple of lines of bricks to stop the cars sinking deeper into the mud.|
|The 'driveway' in all its glory.|
|A view of the rear of the house showing where the shed and chicken house used to be.|
|And a view of the other end.|
|Looking back from the house at the soon to be destroyed garden.|
What follows is to document the 'before' condition of the inside of the house. As you'll see we've not really bothered decorating for a long time, with the cracks etc it didn't really seem worthwhile. The dogs have rather made a mess of the doors as well, they don't look quite as bad in real life I think, they appear worse in the pictures for some reason. The works inside the existing house are going to be something for a later stage, once the extension is completed we can move into that before completely wrecking the house.
So, lets take a tour of the inside. Reference to the plan may be useful to get your bearings. Taking pictures of rooms seems to be difficult, so bear with me if there's a few pics of each one.
I've not actually got the pictures of inside that I'm happy with yet, I'll need to tidy up first before I take some more, so they'll be here soon.
