While going through my old photographs I came across these old pictures of Lyn's cottage before and during renovation..She don't live there anymore, but I know she found it hard to leave when she sold it...
Lyns cottage on the farm was originally lived in by one of the farm workers....It had been neglected - as no one had lived in it for years....but the foundations were sound.
They decided to have work done on it - so they could live there.
It took nearly a year to complete all the work from renovating the outside, and fitting all the necessary things needed inside...Kitchen, Bathroom/Shower room....as it was totally empty, except for the Huge big black cooking range - which filled one end of the room...but once it was taken out it made a lovely nook for the Fireplace....
It must have been a hard life for farm workers,
I would have liked to see the range when it was alight...there were ovens to one side so imaged they cooked and lived in this room.
Upstairs were two bedrooms which were very large.
When all the work had been completed - and the garden planted..it really look very smart
