We have just come back from a 3 month stay in Europe. Mostly to find furniture for our shop, but also to start work on the house. We managed to finish 3 bedrooms and part of the kitchen. We had our first visitors to stay for 2 weeks in June which was so exciting to share our dream with friends. The worst room was tackled first before I ran out of energy! It is a lot bigger than what I first imagined as it has a sloping roof making it feel smaller. The small dormer window looks over the garden and the countryside beyond. The clock tower in the village is a prominent figure when looking out at the garden. On the hour the village bell rings bringing a smile to my lips. We think this was the maids room which is still not finished but at least now it can be slept in.
