    My kind of project!

    20 Years ago I was doing the same sort of thing. You never seem to be getting anywhere for ages and then it all comes together.

    Great feeling seeing and helping your children succeed.

    Well done!

    :)

    lunacy lol fair play to you all for getting stuck in, its serious work once you get in to it and heart breaking at times, but like anything, stick with the plan and it will all come good in the end ;-)

    Good for both your daughter and you for getting stuck in, she will get far more pleasure from this house/home than buying a ready made new house.

    P.S. Can I borrow your dumper :coolsteer)

    Well done to you all for taking on a project like this on Hugh. Our son bought an old semi in Lincoln a few years ago and he had to gut it totally. New plumbing,heating,electrics the lot. In the depths of mid winter it looked a hopeless case but now it's a gorgeous home for him and his wife to be,they get married in November.:)
