Can I say A W E S O M E again?? :-))

and what about those fancy curly decorative bits? I would have been in raptures if I'd found this!

GasGasL€X on March 24, 2012

Wait till ya see the inside pics C.. :) Its a fabulous house, very ornate detailing in its construction.!

GasGasL€X on March 24, 2012

Ps C-line, the "S" wrought iron bits have twisted wrought iron rods running along the ceiling front to back and side to side that hold the structure together... I guess that how they did it back 100 yrs ago. Couldnt have had much confidence that their walls wouldnt just fall over without the rods holding it all together.. :)

Hi Leszek Not to forget the thick iron rods holding the 4 walls together. *L We did one cottage up on our dairy farm when we came into the country 30 years ago**Regards Ebi

Oh wow, it that what they are for? I have seen these a few times before but never had the opportunity to inspect the inside....I am intrigued! I suppose its a bit like we put the diagonal struts inside some structures these days, for extra strength...

GasGasL€X on March 25, 2012

Yep C, my shed had diagonal thin tin straps in a X on each wall but back then they just had blimmin fat iron rods criss crossing the walls to keep it all square, true & upright! :). Thanks for visiting everyone !

Great shot

I have an urge to refurbish it Marion with Kevin McCleod visiting every 6 months...

Nenad Obradovic on April 24, 2012

Very nice photo. Like, Greeting,Nenad

yep and we can follow the saga and see how you do your refurbishments, and how far behind schedule you get Lex (usually due to inclement weather events isn't it?)...however you'd quite possibly just need pots of money!!

GasGasL€X on November 28, 2012

So true Caroline but here in the warm and mild weather of Australia the re-build would take 3 months not 3 years .....

I am learning that renovations always take longer and cost more than you think! My time at the shops is all most every day doing something but enjoying the challange of putting life back into a unloved building. Will put up photos of before and after shots of the shops soon, two of four nearly completed :)

Renos are a pain until they're over Mike .... :-)
