Walls about 18Ē thick and by gum it was very hard work cutting the 4 large slots and 16 smaller ones for the new oak beams.
We lowered the ground floor and raised the first floor to give greater headroom in the ground floor.
I set out the locations for all the wall holes using a laser level and long tape.
I was younger then in 2007/8.
We had an outline plan formed in 203/4/5 to do something like this but had to wait for the right property in right location to be selected by our daughter and husband.
All in all itís worked out very very well.
We could never live on an estate again after 2005.
