Front of Cottage now it's done.

Just a few bits and pieces to finish.....like the TV cables and portico top, but we're really pleased that the old rendering has gone and it was good stone underneath....:o)

Thanks girls....:o) It has some pieces of wood here and there where the old windows were originally...and for years it used to be a shop. To the left is the shed/garage which we had re-roofed and Ian's busy painting it stone coloured to match, when he's knees let him, so little by little.....

looks lovely Janey, is it georgian?

Thanks Gem and Mageth,,,,yes it is late Georgian, there were papers that came with it dating from the late 18th century. The rendering which was on was actually stucco which had been finished like blocks of stone....it was in such bad repair though and was causing damp problems, that it was best to take it off and get the air circulating round. The stone is just basic stuff, not faced, that's why the edges are much softer.

Lovely looking cottage. That stone is lovely, a nice warmth too it. Was it a coach house in the past as I can see a large lintel?

Almost finished..Phew, what a relief for you Janey..Its lovely to see the results
you were looking for. Well, Jane, you can congratulate yourselves, it looks
wonderful!! A nice feeling of contentment. `Well done to both of you..
Yes, your front door looks like a Racing Green colour, very nice & stylish..
What is the name of the colour Janey? Just out of interest...
