House update

We weren't intending to start work on the newer half of the house, we were just there the other day looking around and trying to decide what rooms will be where. Bel fidanzato and I often go to our future home and just think...there are so many possibilities that we can't decide. Whilst we were in our possible future bedroom, bel fidanzato picked away some plaster from the walls with his bare hand. Parts of the walls are very humid so the plaster just falls away. Well, you can imagine the surprise we got when the plaster fell to the ground to expose a beautiful, stone wall.

The stones are in (we think) almost perfect condition, and we hope to keep the wall stripped back like this as a feature wall. Once he saw the wall, there was no stopping bel fidanzato from whipping out his pick and quickly getting to work.

We were hoping that the room below, and the room next to this would have the same walls but it doesn't seem to be the case. Yes, they, like all the walls are all made of stones, rocks and bricks, but not in prime condition like this beauty!

Looks like a lot of work

Great find Leanne, yes a lot of work but well worth exposing the walls where it is suitable to do so. We have done this during our current renovation project where suitable both interior and exterior.
