The Beginning

The Beginning

The Existing Building

Before work commenced
We bought our house in Mouy in late April 2010. The house itself had been rather neglected for a couple of years so needed a fair bit of work including the replacement of a couple of bathrooms and rewiring.

The stable block in the garden was in a pretty poor state and was being used as a shed for the storage of garden equipment and lots of rubbish! The roof was not doing a bad job in keeping out the elements but there had been a partial collapse of one part of the rear wall, along with a fair amount of vegetation growing through at various points.

Upstairs was fairly clear, although we could see that the supports for the roof were fairly rotten and they'd need to be replaced. The stairs were very uneven and dangerous and the floor was very thin and unstable.    more ...
