My camera broke some time ago and while I search for a replacement, a few homely items gather on window sills
Our ceiling has been beautifully finished with mouldings & small attic trap doors
While this newly hung internal door significantly reduces drafts & for the first time the room actually feels warm
However! Now that the true winter has put the building to the test – unfortunately one area is far from dry.
Indeed dampness glistens upon the inside wall of the northwest gable & seeps into the edge of the floor.
Investigation reveals that rain is now permeating through an area of old, recycled stone – (the area below the small window) – proving to be highly porous compared with newly quarried stone which is completely dry (used adjacent to the small window)
As a result, this single area needs to be sealed as soon as possible.
A few consecutive dry days is essential, yet an extremely unlikely prospect given the nightly storms of late!
