  1. have just thoroughly enjoyed your posts on your new/used house, love old houses, especially when they haven't been bodged with home renovators who know absolutely nothing about it ( have had walls removed where they shouldn't have been removed) one day hope to be in a nice little cottage (in original condition) in the middle of a large acreage too!
    am looking forward to seeing more progress on your new adventures here & love the name. will you be changing the blog name when you move as well?
