Before We Started
There had been an earlier gable end which had fallen or been pulled down. Remnants of stone wall and a clay/cob wall were there. Unfortunately the stone and cob were unstable so they had to be removed.
We originally planned to work on the House and Tower, and leave the New Build area, including our master bedroom, until much later.
We considered where we would live, and wanted to stay on site to supervise construction.After looking at some mobile homes, we realized it could be a few years before we slept in our own bedroom. So, we decided to do the Master Bedroom area first, as a small house, so we could have a relatively comfortable place to stay without paying rent. Thus we started work on this area in February 2019, and it is mostly complete by September 2019.
