With all the paperwork finally completed and settled we picked up the keys today and spent hours in the house wandering around. We keep finding new elements to the building. I’m making guesses about what has happened when. It is quite an amazing place. This time we had lunch inside the building.
The big issue we have is the roof with its guttering and its leaks. So we are pretty focused on getting that fixed as soon as we can. There are a few other high priority jobs. On closer inspection I’ve found a few panes of glass with cracks or bits missing from windows in various rooms. I’ll get on to fixing them quite soon.
I’m thinking all these vines have to go. I can not see why they should stay as I’m worried about the damage they could do to the walls and even the pipes.
