  1. Hard, no, impossible to dispute that ‘happiness is a sash window in a stone gable”. And that door is a thing of beauty, as well as practical for keeping the fowl out but letting the light & air in.

  2. Awesome stuff Louise. It has been a pleasure and a privilege to follow this authentic journey of celebration of our vernacular Irish build heritage. It must be some feeling to get to this point. Happiness is indeed a sash window in a stone gable. 🙂

  3. Louise this looks amazing! I was lovely to see you the other week, we were all really touched that you came. I will be following progress with interest. The windoes are indeed a thing of beauty.
