July to September 2004
Apart from fitting a small granite hearth in the dining room and installing a gas log fire, we embarked on the next major project of refurbishing the Bathroom and Bedroom 5. But whilst we had some good weather we needed to widen the pebble dashing to the west rear wall to cover the brickwork by 4 to 6 inches. This should have been done along with the pebble dashing eighteen months earlier but wasn't, so dampness was getting in between the brick built and stone built parts of the house. This was yet more unnecessary expense.
