Despite the various pieces of tinkering and potching that I’ve committed over the past months, I never really felt that we’d made a real start on conversion of the barn. That is until the last couple of weeks when the wall came down.
As dramatic as it sounds, the wall coming down entailed the removal of a section of about four feet of stone wall that butted up to the barn at the southern extremity of its east facing wall. In reality a small job, but one with a large psychological impact. This is the first job that has been completed that has altered the shell of the barn from its old to its planned new state and as such gives a real feeling of a milestone passed.
A small but significant step.
