Today we started (ok the builder started) and I was very impressed with the progress.
These two rooms which were originally bedrooms and have recently been a studio and a store room are to be combined to create one large studio.
This is the wall that is coming down. Plaster and lathe and horsehair were the components 100 years ago when this house was built.
The slats were put on first and then the plaster pushed on and through.
By the end of the day we have an indication about the new space.
and what is this you ask - it is a petrified dead rat which we found in the wall cavity.
