Golden Week Progress

Here's a selection of "before" and "after" pics of the work John and I did over Golden Week:


 After cutting the trees and removing the rotted out lean-to behind the outbuilding:



Clearing the garden to reveal the original paving stones that pass over the pond and lead up to the entrances:



The freshly cleared out pond... Just gotta find its source of water now!






The room next to the Kitchen/ Dining area before and after removing the wall and ceiling coverings retrofitted in the early 70s (I know this because I found a calendar from 1969 stuffed in the roof space to prevent drafts):
